replacing coolermaster v6 gt fans

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Ey there ocn community,

I recently purchased and installed a coolermaster v6 gt. In idle state the sound is convenient enough. However when the cpu is only getting stressed a bit the fans go up and make a lot of noise.

I was thinking of replacing the fans with other 120mm fans. Though i have my thoughts about it because of the CFM?

Can anyone or has anyone replaced these fans? And what 120mm fans can you suggest?

I'd shoot for a GentleTyphoon AP14; reasonably quiet and provides adequate airflow.

Doesn't mean much if I'm honest. Noctuas may be quiet but they also don't push much air. An S-Flex E/GT AP14 would be much better without making much noise.

Better in what view? Pushes more air? Also theres a price difference, ive read some about the gentle tyhpoons but im still a bit skeptic. Im afraid that replacing the fans with aftermarket ones on the CM v6 GT wont be able to cool enough on the cpu? Or am i just making a scare for nothing.

Also which RPM models should I take? Sorry if i come over as a baby that needs his answer fed lol but i dont have any experience on replacing fans on a CPU cooler.

I wish those of us in the US could just order those fans at will.

That is an excellent choice for a heatsink fan. Great balance of airflow, static pressure, and noise. All you should hear at full blast is air moving.

What's stopping you, besides the price?


FYI, 14 left in stock, and their supplier is Platinum Micro. Several sales lead back to them, it seems.
