Fan for Athlon



New Member

I'm looking for a new set of fans for my Athlon CPU, as the fans I have now (that came with the heatsink) are noisy as all heck. I've tried replacing them with some older and quieter fans from Socket 7 heatsinks I had available, but the computer would then mysteriously reboot itself while playing some games, leading me to suspect overheating had occured. (Actually is this a correct assumption -- would the K7 fans really spin faster/dissipate more heat than the quieter Socket 7 fans I tried?) Thank you.

I hate my nick :(
hell yes..
the old crappy fans you put on would do nothing on a K7, just leave them on and put your case covers back on

K7 fans run at 6000 rpm and above, so they tend to be noisey. If you find some that work and are quiet, I want them also.
