Northbridge Fan

Last response: in Motherboards

I recently noticed my northbridge fan is quite noisy and would like to replace it. I have an evga 790i ultra sli motherboard. The fan that is currently on it runs at 5000rpm. Would it be ok to buy a fan that has lower rpm to reduce the noise? I do overclock though so I'm wondering if the lower rpm will have a significant amount of effect on the heat.

You can buy chipset heatsinks, some without fans (although you need good airflow in your case for those).
