Default cpu fan

hi everyone sorry i havent been on as much. Super busy. which is a good thing.


i need to buy a cpu fan for an i7 lga 1155 (4 pin fan). dont do many fan replacements and just want to get the best one for the client. Any suggestions on good products or things to stay away from.

Thanks everyone in advance

I really like noctua fans; a little more expensive, but good quality. Basically just don't buy the cheapest fans out there. The fans from most of the major brands are all pretty decent.

I pick up new stock Intel heatsink and fan assemblies all the time on ebay for just a few bucks. They work pretty well for a run-of-the-mill machine. Like this:

Most people are content to know you have replaced their ailing fan with a "new genuine Intel part."

thanks for the tip. if this was a run of the mill machine i would do just that. Do it all the time but this is a $2500 high performance rig.

just want to know if a 120 mm fan will work. or how would i find out. i have been looking around google for about am hour and still not a clear answer

Oh, sorry. I think the only way is to measure the clearance inside the case and compare with the dimensions of the heat sink. Also the motherboard has to come out to mount that one, I believe. Sorry if you know all of this as well.

why not go with liquid cooling
this has everything built in so you dont have to worry about spilling anything on a $2500 machine.

if you want to go with a close loop system, the Corsair H 100 perform way better for about the price of this Antec. The Corsair h100 perform about the same as a Noctua D14

Fitted the h100 today for a client, i noticed a 10c difference in their previous 40 air cooler.

Worth the money, replace the corsair loud fans that come with it though
