Most of the time, you can use a case fan for CPU cooler, as long as it fits and can be secured.

The problem is that CPU cooler usually has a PWM wire.

What fan can you suggest to replace the cpu fan?

I want to keep the heatsink as it has that rgb thingy on its top.

It might technically work. But if those case fans are low static pressure. They may not perform as well as the one included with the heat sink. You’ll only know by trying it and testing.
Planning to do so but probably won't happen because my case fans rpm only at 1100 while the cpu fan is at 2400 rpm.


What cpu fan can you suggest to replace the one in the heatsink as i want to keep the heatsink for its aesthethic look? Hoping one with PWM wire.
