"13000 RPM" - wow!

In my most recent home PC build, I used 120mm case fans with SFD bearings
running at a mere 1200RPM fans.  The power supply is a 90%+ efficient unit
which has low-RPM 80mm fans that only run when they need to, and at the
speeds they need to.  13000 RPM 40mm fans have to be seriously loud... I
wonder if you could inline some resistors to slow them down and still have
acceptable cooling?
