Changing C2D heatsink fan?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
Just asking about changing the c2d stock heatsink fan, may be replacing it by a stronger fan (gentle typhoon)
I want to know if this is possible and what do you expect the results would be?

You can't put a different fan onto the stock heatsink.

You can buy a "Coolermaster Hyper 212+" and put 2 gentle typoons on that if you wish, but the stock hyper 212 is awesome, and only 20 dollars.

If you got lots of money grab a Noctura D14

Like he said, you can not put another fan on the stock heatsink.

You cant. your stuck with stock fans when using a stock cooler. If you want better cooling performance you gatta buy a new heatsink. The Cooler master Hyper 212+ is the perfect starting point for anyone looking to incress the cooling of their rig. Hate to be the guy with bad news, but youll have to live with the stock fan or go buy somthing...You might be able to use Zip Tie's to get a stronger fan on the stock heat sink, but would be a wast of time, as you need more surface area befor adding airflow. Hope this helps!

Well, you technically can, with some modding, but i don't think anyone has done it before because it's stupidly useless. the stock fan runs up to 4000rpm, no 70-80mm fan is better than that.

Get a hyper 212+ for a 20-30C decrease in some cases.
