Any coolers with outward 120mm fans?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Cooler Master Vortex Plus in my rig. It cools perfectly fine but it has a variety of noise issues with it. One of the worst being a high pitched whining that emits from it's fan blades at any speed. I was told that this was due to it's smaller fan size (92mm) which are notorious for causing a high pitched noise.

Anyhow, I was wondering if there were any coolers in the same sort of design but with a 120mm fan instead of a 92mm? My 2500k will be at stock so I don't need anything crazy high performance. Anything to get rid of this noise! axesmiley.png

Here's a picture for reference. Thank you for reading.

there are a number of low profile design heatsinks that may fit, however till we get an idea of what mobo / case / ram you are using, it's kinda hard to suggest a replacement smile.gif

Really? Did you also have issue with the stock CM fan?

I didn't have a whine like you mentioned, it was just loud. I run the Scythe one at about half speed and it's quieter and pushes more air.

Any tips on installing it? Some say fan swaps can be a bit tricky with the V-Plus.

Ah yes, that some serious dough for a downdraft cooler. At that point I would imagine most people would start considering the AIO watercoolers.

Like so
