thermaltake Frio advance alternate fans

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi i have a question about different fan choices for my heatsink.
I have an i7-870 overclocked to 3.75GHz with a thermaltake frio advanced heatsink here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835106187
now it says that its a 130mm fan that uses 120mm brackets i was wondering if i could clip in 120mm fans that performed better similar to the noctua here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608038&IsVirtualParent=1
which brings me to my next issue im trying to keep a color scheme of black and red, mobo, case, gpu card, everything down to keyboard and mouse matches and i have the nzxt hue to light it up so it would look stupid to have to tan and brown fans sitting dead in the middle of everything. im looking for something that moves more than 88.77CFM and no more than 40 DBA and that is black or red
any help is appreciated, thanks in advance
P.S. before anybody suggests it i want to stick with air cooling i dont have the room or patients for an h80

What makes you think that noctua will do you good? Sure it's silent and everything but it's air output is sub-50CFM and not very good pressure
Frio heatsinks are one of those heatsinks that depend on 2000rpm fans to dissipate heat and it's just a 120mm fan mount not a 130, 130 if you count the extended sides to make it a little wider than 120 for the blades
Frankly if you want a good fan

For a red/black themed fan replacement I'd consider: Corsair SP-120-PWM, Cooljag Everflow (not red, but black at least won't clash), Enermax Magma, or possibly a pwm Scythe Slipstream.
