Fan and cooler recommandation

My PC was very noisy and running hot so I cleaned all the dust. Now it's a bit
better for the GPU (60-65°C under heavy load) but the CPU easily reaches 70°C
and can go up to 87°C under very heavy load.

It's my first build so I don't know what temperatures are acceptable. I've moved
the only front fan from the top to the middle of the case. I'm not sure if it
has any good or bad consequences as the benchmark I've seen on optimal air-flow
didn't seem to reveal any preferable fan configuration.

The noise is still here but I can't figure out which fan makes it. I could try
to remove them one by one but I don't want to damage the components. I'll
probably buy a new set of fans (I wanted to add fans to my case anyway). Any
fans recommandation ? I think my case can fit 120mm and 140mm.

I also looking to change my CPU Cooler as one of the blades is cracked. I don't
know how it could have happened honestly. I don't think it's what causing the
noise I hear since it was not damaged before, I may have damaged it after
cleaning it somehow.

Here is my current build for reference:

Intel i7-7700K
Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1 Gaming
Cryorig CR-H7A Cooler
MSI Z270 SLI PLUS
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000
Case Fractal Design Define S (1 front mid & 1 back fan)
EVGA SuperNOVA 550W
OS: Linux

EDIT: Region is EU (France)

You can just change the fan on your CPU cooler no need to change the whole cooler.

If you can find a value pack of 5 Arctic Cooling P12 PWM PST your best bet would be to get them and run 3 in front as intake, and 1 in the back as exhaust. and the 4th one on the CPU cooler, and keep the last one as backup. In total these 5 fans shouldn't exceed ~$30/25 euros and probably even cheaper.

If only 140mm P14 are available you can get these as well, repeat all of the above and then place a 140mm on your cooler with zip-ties or a big rubber band.

It would be easier to have some fan cable splitters/adapters or a hub just to make your life easier hooking all the wires, someone will recommend you good ones depending on where you live, where you're buying (please tell us this, because it's hard to recommend exact products otherwise).

Get your self a 24 pin jumper. https://www.amazon.com/CRJ-24-Pin-Sw...xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

And one of these. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0837PKS8H...NsaWNrPXRydWU=

Then test yours fans before buying a **** ton of new ones.

I've updated the post with my location, thanks.

Thank you, I was just wondering how I could test my fans and you seem to have answered my question.

spending money to cool a 7700K without deliding first is a wasted effort.

You shouldn't have any problem finding the 5 fan value pack in France, or at least in germany/austria/UK for 20-25 euros. These are the fans you're looking for:

https://geizhals.eu/arctic-p12-pwm-p...-a1920167.html

Likewise probably the cheapest and easiest way would be to get one Noctua 4-pin PWM extension pack (or some other brand) and connect the fans to the motherboard, 2 or 3 per header. This:
https://geizhals.eu/noctua-na-sec1-a...loc=pl&hloc=uk

Another option if your motherboard doesn't have many plug-in headers for the fans would be one of these Akasa splitters:

take the side off the case and see how cooler the CPU gets. Case doesn't look good for airflow

First thing I suggest you do is read basic guide to airflow and how to optimize case airflow in link below:
https://www.overclock.net/forum/22319249-post5.html
Then post up a couple links to places you can buy fans so we can help you pick a couple of good fans to put in front of your Define S case.

I've removed the side off the case, doesn't improve much (a few degrees).

However I'm a bit baffled by this comment. I didn't know before what cpu deliding was and I'm surprised how much an effect it has on Intel CPU temperature. I mean Intel CPU are expensive as **** and they don't even bother with proper heat conduction…

As for my noise issue I believe it's not the fans attached to the motherboard, it comes from one of the fan of my Nvidia GPU.

Removing case side cover often doesn't help. In fact I have seen it cause temps to increase on several occasions. Reason is with side cover on the paths air is flowing in are contained. Remove cover and paths the air is flowing in change. Kinda like how houses, mountains, etc effect wind blowing around them.
