Hey guys. Just wondering if it is safe to remove a cpu fan and put in 2 more case fans, 1 facing directly towards the cpu which will be 12cm. This will quieten my computer and leave it cooler?

Is this safe? Thanks.

There is kinda a reason why cpu's have these. :)

I wouldnt leave the fan off a CPU. Youre asking for trouble

Not safe at all.

There are some passive CPU coolers out there, but if the cooler was designed to use a fan then removing this reduces the ability of the cooler to cool the CPU, even if you have a fan blowing onto it, it is not the same as having a dedicated CPU fan...

Running a CPU cooler designed for a fan, without a fan is usually asking for trouble...

If you want a silent system, change the CPU cooler fan to something like a SilenX (available in NZ from http://modyourpc.com)

I've used one for over a year, and would highly recommend
