Replacement fan for Coolermaster V6 cooler

Hello,

I am currently using a Coolermaster V6 cooler for my processor, but the fan has died. What is the best fan that will fit this cooler (I assume all 120mm fans will?)? I am looking for one that is as quiet as possible, but has at least the performance of the stock fan that came with the V6. I believe it was 800-2200 RPM, PWM. I don't care about LEDs but if the best option does come with LED's I'd prefer blue. I don't care if it's necessarily a Coolermaster brand replacement fan, just whichever will be compatible and offer the best performance and is the quietest.

Also, my cooler is the base V6, not the V6GT which I think came with two fans. Should I get two fans, or will increase the noise a lot?


Thanks for any suggestions!

i am not sure about replacement fans but why not just buy a CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... it's only 29.99 and my cousin uses it and has his overclocked to 4.3ghz temps are decent but if you want to overclock like a big dog i recommend NH-D14 or rasa kit ;)

I was actually thinking about just getting a whole new cooler, however the V6 actually does a really good job (my i7 is slightly overclocked), and just getting the fan is cheaper. I would also like to avoid having to go through the trouble of installing and uninstalling coolers rather then just pop on a new fan. Thanks for the suggestion though!

scythe do some great fans... well worth a visit to there site to check out there silent or high performance fans... remember the heatsync will work better the higher the cfm value of the fan so 70-100+ should be the ballpark you want to aim for...
the newer liquid bearings may also be a good choice but more often than not there low cfm and just good for silent running rather than extreme cooling...

some good brands...

i use a scythe PMW 120mm with my CM 212+ evo. runs cool (2500k under 50c gaming) and with a max speed of 1300rpm, it won't sound like a dust buster in your case

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

for such a low max rpm this is a stunning performer...
great find...
