That's normal. There was actually a technical explanation on here earlier that I can't recall ... something about 2 pole vs 4 pole tachometers.

The CPU Fan speed will typically be about 1/2 of the actual RPM speed. The reading for pump speed in Link is correct. The important thing is that the cooler is providing a tach signal to the motherboard so you don't get CPU Fan warnings.
