I have a Thermaltake Venus 7+ heatsink/fan on my AMD socket 754 CPU. The fan seems to be having problems. It won't stay running most of the time. So I was wondering if I can just buy any 70mm CPU fan with the 3 wire connector and be ok?
It says the max CFM is 33.2 while my Thermaltake fan says 21.29 CFM at 32°C/41.95 CFM at 42°C.
They ebay fan says it runs at 3800RPM while the Thermaltake says 3050 10% RPM at 32C ~ 6000 10% RPM at 42C.
Yeah I talked to a guy from a comp repair place today. he said I have to get a fan with at least the same CFM as the one that came with my heatsink. Higher is better though, but I can't seem to find anything in the 70mm size. 38 cfm is the highest I've found so far. (fan only, no heatsink)
