Liquid cooler change fan radiator

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello to all :)  How are u guys? i want to ask u something because im not sure!

I have a liquid cooler on my pc (H45 corsair)

The fan makes to much noise and I want to change it.

If I change it with other corsair fan like corsair AF120 LED BLUE Quiet Edition 3 pin it will it work?

Or I need 4 pin ? Or the fans from liquid cooler should not be changed?

 

I always had this question!
Thank you for your time
😊

Have a nice day 😊

Either should work, if noise is the issue you may want to play around with fan curves first to see if you can get that down

The 4th pin is for PWM, essentially meaning better control over fan speed, either a 3 or 4 pin fan will work.

So i can change the fan with no problem right? 

With any 120mm fan?
