Corsair A70, Aftermarket Fans

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Cooler I have
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Series-Performance-Cooler-CAFA70/dp/B003IT6RE8

I have a Corsair A70 cooler and I'm looking to jazz up my computer's looks and improve airflow rate. Right now it has the stock 120mm x 25mm corsair flat black fans. I was looking for higher airflow, and a flashier design. I have a Corsair 600t white with red fans, and was thinking a red cathode/or red fan color would look good. Can i do this? Such as have aftermarket fans on this heatsink, and it will perform? Thanks guys. New to the forum.

Here are some of the thoughts I had.

Again, Thanks!
