Using brand fans on Different CPU solutions?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i was wanting the blue colored "phanteks" heat sink, and adding the 140mm Corsair Preformance fans and replacing the stock fans on the phantek?

Then a second question came to mind. Could i use NZXT brand name heat sinks or such other, and use the Corsair fans as well?

OCC:I want the aesthetics of the blue circle around a fan, this is why im choosing Corsair.

You need to look at the mounting of the fan not the actual size of the fan. I believe the NZXT fans use 120mm mountings even though they are 140mm fans. the corsair 140MM fans i believe use 140MM mounts so you will have to go with the corsair 120mm's.
