Whats the size of the stock fan on the 965 125w rev.c3 am3 3.4 BE heatsink.I want to replace it because it runs very low speeds and it makes a rattling type noise.I think its a 70mm but not sure.Also what fan would be awesome to slap onto the stock heatsink for light overclocking?I am not concerned with noise just as long as its powerfull and moves the most cfm and rpm for the price.If it has clear blue leds would be awesome,but whatever works the best.

My stock fan doesn't look like that, and i bought it the other day.
Mine looks like this:

you can easily pop the fan off and replace it, its the rig holding the fan that seems difficult to replace.

Edit: my bad, jumped the gun on what those were pictures of. If you wanna know the fan size, just measure it with a ruler.

Edit 2: I guess my original statement was right, the fans posted above are older. As for a new fan, i think you can get a new 3rd party cooler for next to nothing these days that will be sufficient for a mild overclock.

SPCR did a review of the new AM3 cooler a few days ago

Good find.
Looks like a bit of a downgrade in cooling performance to get a quieter cooler.

With that unusual fan mounting clip I'm not sure you'd have much luck adding a high CFM 80mm or 92MM fan.
I tried searching for stock heat sink fan mods and nothing turned up.

mine looks like that one julian has so the fan is replaceable i just dont know the size.wierd that they dont include that info anywhere I looked.So Im guessing from that review hunter the fan is 65mm.I could just get a high cfm case fan and slap it on there hmm.

Like i said, just take a ruler to it and measure it. If you want, I'll even measure mine for you and let you know. :)
