Hi, I made a computer for work and I want to make it as quiet as possible. I am using the on board video card, and the only fan in my system is the Hyper 212+. I am running an Intel i3-2100... and my IDLE TEMPS are around 30C. The fan is running at around 600 RPM. If I take out the fan attached to the hyper 212+ will my CPU overheat? Is it ok if I do so? PROS? CONS?

very likely overheat! Need airflow to move the heat away from the heat sink.

i have the same cooler and if I remove the CPU fan my CPU temp will only go up 10c from with the fan (50c to 60c at peak temp). granted there is a 12mm behind the cooler and 14mm fan above it.

is the fan making noise at 600 rpm? you can easily replace the fan to a silent fan and the cooler will work just fine.

It depends on case airflow, you could even just test it, just watch the temps.
