What size fan is on my stock AMD FX-8300 cooler?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I measured it at 3 inches (76mm) sooooo I'm just assuming it's an "80mm" as far as specs are concerned and to just round it up?

Googling the actual size myself is proving oddly difficult; I just pull up advertisements.

I may have measured it wrong, if my continuing research is to be true.

I measured along one side to the other. Getting conflicting info if you measure screw hole to hole, opposite corners etc.. I really just need to know what box I tick; 80mm or 70mm when looking for replacements.

If you're able to measure centers between the screw holes (horizontally or vertically, not diagonally) (assuming it's the same style of cooler that my old 8150 had - a fin stack with a standard fan stuck to the top of it), there should be 72-72.5mm between the two, and it would be an 80mm fan.

Weird how it's an "80mm" when it's closer to 70mm. But I guess 80mm is just the 'standard' right?

I never measured mine, never even used it to be quite frank, I just remember what it looked like, and I know the hole spacing for 80mm fans.

If it is indeed the same as the one boxed with my 8350, it's this fan right here that's stuck to the top of it, which appears to be listed as a 70mm fan by the manufacturer.

@Semper

I ordered an 80mm and it's too fucking big.

God I hate this bullshit.
