chef's cpu fan

Postchef's cpu fan by Chef

hi people,

my cpu fan has finally given up the ghost and i will need a replacement. currently i have a freezer pro 7 ac series 1 4 pin heatsink

my replacement must be 1. reliable, 2. inexpensive

i have zero budget for this so looking at £20 or less

thanks

I assume you need a socket 775 cpu fan? Plenty on amazon for under £20!
What cpu do you have?

Perhaps one of these?

You would want to make sure the cpu fan fits your motherboard before buying.

How are the temps when running an intensive game for a short period of time?

The processor can handle a lot more. You're only ever in real trouble if the CPU is running close to 100°C for extended periods of time.

As Skid said; be sure the fan fits your MB before you buy.

Peace!
