2,000RPM is just a bit above the threshold I'd recommend for near silence... for a 120mm fan I'd look for 1,400-1,600RPM as the range, but everyone's hearing is a bit different (along with people's definition of what qualifies as silence!). However, these are sleeve bearing fans, so that will help somewhat.
