Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with using different fans on a Thermaltake Water2.0 Pro or similar Thermaltake radiator.

I wanted to upgrade the stock fans so I did a bunch of research and found the Akasa Vipers which had amazing reviews and performed very well in many roundup tests I saw.

Unfortunately, I installed the new fans and took a 3C temperature RISE compared to the stock Thermaltake fans.

To answer some questions up front. The ambient temperature was the same (+/- 1 or 2C) during both tests with each set of fans. I was running the CPU at 100% load for about 10 minutes in each test then looked at the max temps for each core using RealTemp.

Has anyone replaced their Thermaltake fans with new ones that actually reduced their temps?
