CPU heatsink/fan ?

Hello,
My Core2 CPU cooler fan (Intel fan) is beginning to make noises & I suspect the bearings are going bad. I would like to get a replacement but don't want to have to remove the MB to install a new Fan. Are there some good reliable fan models than can be installed w/o removal of MB toinstall a backplate, etc. Current CPU is Core2 Quad Q6700 (socket 775)

    There are so many decent heatsink/fan combo's to choose that should fit straight on a standard 775 fitment.

    It's really down to personal pref, things like look, sound, size and cost.

    Also check your case setup. Take the side off and see if it has an access panel cut out. These enable the changing of backplates without removing the motherboard.

    Hope this helps.

    Maybe these compatible CPU coolers will help you a lot.
    Not only these lasts very very long but it offers much better
    cooling than the stock ones and, it is very cheap and very reliable.

    -- In addition, these cpu coolers are tool less and "clip-and-forget" kinda.
    You dont have to remove your motherboard from the case or any backplate
    from the back of the motherboard just to install these.


    Hope this helps.
