My System Specs

Default Arctic Cooling Accelero Xtreme fans

Hey all, since Anitec is being gay and still doesn't want to RMA my cooler, I was thinking of replacing the fans myself. I was wondering if I could attach two fans, either 120mm or 80mm on the heatsink with zipties or something. And if I do, should they be push, or pull?

I would say zip-tie some fans to it. The extra weight should pose no problem at all.

Push through the fins and whatever fans fit the best on the heatsink.
