Hey Everyone,

I have a quick question for anyone's input. I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus heatsink cooling an I5-3570K & wanted to switch the main fan it came with to a Scythe Ultra Kaze "120mm" & heard from a friend that the one he has is rather heavy (don't know the actual weight) & was wanting to know if anyone knows if it will work good with the CM Hyper 212+ I have installed.

The Scythe Ultra Kaze 120mm has amazing reviews on Newegg & since I'd like to do an OC on my CPU I would like to have a nice good fan to help cool things down.

Anyone with input that can help me out would be much appreciated :D 

Here is the link to the Scythe Kaze 120mm fan on Newegg.com

Edit: I forgot to add that the Scythe Ultra Kaze is a little bit bigger then normal 120mm fans that's why I need a little help

Doesn't really matter how 'big' it is once its a 120mm fan it will fit on the hyper 212+ all you have to do it swap the fan mounts that came with the cooler to your new fans and you're set

does the fan have a 4pin connection? It might be fine with 3.. but if it only has 2 pins (like my psu) it will always run at full speed. This means it will be very very loud. My psu drove me crazy so I took it apart and put my own fan connecting to my fan controller/

Plus the fan on the 212 attaches by clips at the end.. so I doubt other fans will work.

I don't know if glueing or taping is a bad thing..

It has 3 pins, plus it came with a 3 & 4 pin adapter

Best solution

The thing about setting a different fun in the Hyper 212+ are the mounting clips -- perhaps you will have to do some adaptation in order to fix the new fun, but at the end it should work fine! :) 

Another thing to consider it the vibration.

The CM original fun comes with four small rubber at its extremities to avoid vibration -- with the new fun you can use double sided adhesive tape instead -- if you use it all along the fun, it will also help to keep the air flow.
