Advice for replacement CPU Fan

Kernal23
 Share

Hello, thank you to all the wonderful people who help others on these forums. 

 

I have an Asus B150M-A D3 motherboard. The fan is stopping the PC for turning on, a speed issue. I was looking at replacing the fan. Do I just need to make sure the it is an Intel 1151 socket and that there is enough physical space?  

 

Could anyone suggest something current? I am in Australia and I tend to use these two shops normally

Thanks in advance, Shane

You should actually be able to disable the fan-check while booting up. This will ignore the fan speed and will let you boot normally.

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

Thanks but my son was trying to be proactive and clean his computer and broke 2 of the pins. I think the computer will also benefit from a fresh cpu fan. I greatly appreciate the advice.

I use the same one for 2 years now. Works great and is very affordable.

Pins on mobo side? You would still need to use another header for fan and disable warning. Getting new cooler won't change that. What case you have? Case will determine if you need to look for smaller cooler. Though 212 BE is 159mm so it should fit most cases.

Thanks heaps SavageNeo 


I checked that and the non RGB and both are pre-order status on stock. I was hoping to go into the shop tomorrow and know what I need without being upsold on the item. 

Is this ok? It is Socket 1151 and 4 pin connector, they are only things I know to check for, the rest I have no idea about.

The pins on the bottom of the cooling fan that drop down into the holes in the motherboard.

Sorry, my lack of description isn't helping. The pins are more the securing mechanism located at the bottom of the fan/heat sync. Two are broken, so it will not firmly lock into place. This pretty much  is what is in the case at the moment.
