Changing the fan in my cooler?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

I received my Coolermaster V8 cooler today in the mail, after some time I finnaly got it fitted and applied some cheap thermal paste. Using a fan monitor the fan is running at about ~430 rpm on max. I think it's time for a new one, I understand its a 120mm fan but what if the one I buy is to wide will it still work?

On a other note should the cooler 'sag' down? as it's on a lean of like 2mm - 3mm down in my case, I guess it's just heavy?
