I've already take the Intel's fan off and I want to replace it by 120mm fan.
did anyone know how to mod these kinda stuff ?
Thank You ,
Being in Thailand your room temps will also have a lot to do with the heat your cpu is "seeing". The Intel fan setup is unique. I've checked with a Google search, and don't believe there are any retrofit type brackets for the stock Intel heatsink.
As I see it you have two choices.
1) Replace the stock heat sink if money allows
2) Add a side fan of larger diameter to the case's side panel. You could add a 80m, 92mm or 120mm.
Option 2 will allow outside air temps to blow directly on the cpu heatsink and depending on where you position the fan, other areas of the motherboard/video card/ddr, etc.
The downside of this arrangement is the the air being added to the case is only as cool as your room temps. It will help, but room temps of 30C or more will effect the total cooling of the case. As a side note. There are many commercially available cases with this type fan arrangement. Usually one fan in the lower front (inlet), one on the side panel (inlet) and one in the rear acting as an exhaust fan (outlet).
I hope this helped, :-)
