Hey everyone, I need help finding a good 140 mm fan. I recently purchased a 140 mm Cooler Master case fan..but it doesn't do the job. It somehow made it worse..so if I could get some advice from you guys, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

p.s. I would also, like something that runs over 1000 rpms.

Its the CFM at lower speeds (rpm) that is important. Take a look at these and decide: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E...

You said that the fan made it worse? Is it installed in the proper direction of air flow? Side, front, and bottom fans are intake fans - and top and rear fans are exhaust fans.

Also, I say that it made it worse because the mainboard temp has gone up from 45-50 c to 55-65c. pretty weird..

Look for the problem elsewhere. Its probably a coincidence that the fan installation and the temp increase occurred at the same time. A 10 degs rise is not acceptable. Something else has changed in your system. Time for some trouble-shooting.
