    Fan replacements etc questions.

    Im planning to replace the ICE fan with a noiseblocker (on my SB75G2) and remove the fan grills, add gromitts etc etc etc....


    I was wondering whether its advisable to do the Northbridge as well, especially if im thinking about overclocking as well. Would changing it for one of these:


    (A Zalman NB32J)

    be a bad idea?



    Also does anyone know if those rubber gromett screw replacements will work if i keep the fan inside the case?


    Thanks

    I'd recommend the NB47 as it's got 30% more surface area.
    If your system will be fully loaded then go for the S4 fan - quieter than stock with same temps.

    The grommets works but are awkward to fit. Try it without them first. My S4 is fine without.
