I am looking at getting the Cooler Master V10 cooler, bit of a monster size wise, but after reading many reviews, its usually rated at getting the best temps.
The size and price kill it for most. If you plan on not doing any OCing the cooler will perform decently. If you plan to push the processor though, you will find that it doesn't do so good at higher heat levels.
It has two 120mm fans and each are wired into a single 4-pin pwm connecter, which connects to its own TEC. Each fan is rated at 90cfm, and have red LEDs. I want to swap them out for higher speed fans, frozen cpu has 150cfm fans that are PWM compatable. I can mount them obviously, but I dont know how I can get them connected.
The two cooling fans though are wired together and only use one 4-pin fan connector. This might pose a little bit of a problem for those wanting to replace the stock fans with higher performing fans. It will take a little modification to allow them to draw power from the same connection. Just keep in mind that you will want to make sure you don't exceed the motherboards fan header specifications, or you might possibly damage it.
Do I just cut and splice the wires?
Is there a pass through adapter or Y adapter? (So far only found 4-pins for the big atx style connectors)
