Question about adding a fan to heatsink

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can I take this fan:

http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-R4-C2R-20AC-GP-Bearing-Connector/dp/B008LA6K46/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1373302463&sr=8-3&keywords=COOLER+MASTER+R4-C2R-20AC-GP+120mm+Case

and stick it on this Cooler for a push pull config:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=6146836&SID=n9k68ynvpidx

Thanx, I know Cooler Master sells fans, but the shipping costs more than the extra fan at their site. :/

Why order online? Just go to the nearest PC hardware store and buy whichever high-performance fan you like smile.gif Done deal smile.gif

I live in Fort Collins and there isn't any hardware store that isn't retarded overprice... Anyway, figured it out and going with the sickle flow. My first time buying a cooler, and didn't know if there was a difference between case fans and CPU fans. Even tho it looks similar; it's that one minor detail that matters...

Cooler fans normally have higher static pressure ratings than case fans to overcome the resistance of fins.. but many of best "cooler" fans are sold seperate from coolers as "case" fans by their makers... so "case" and "cooler" fan doesn't mean much. wink.gif

I feel all fans should have good static pressure ratings because the resistance of front grill and grill are about same as fins.. than add the resistance of HDD cage, cables, etc....
