Upcoming i5 2500 - case fan help
Dec 14, 2011, 5:29 PM
I'm gonna be purchasing an i5 2500 soon. In the meantime, my case fan has failed and ive done some troubleshooting and it looks like its just a dead fan (been working for about 5 years poor thing)
What cfm or rpm should i look for in a 92mm case fan that will be able to handle the 2500?
I won't be overclocking, and noise isnt a huge deal. But from what i've seen i think id rather avoid the vantec 92mm tornado/hair dryer
This looked promising
Quick side note, i'll have the default cpu cooler that comes with the i5.

the i5 operates fairly cool for a CPU and that fan will do the job (hopefully for another five years)
