Solved Replacing CPU cooler 4-pin PWM fan to 3pin fan.

  • 0

Due to product unavailability & since my aftermarket CPU cooler 92mm 4-pin PWM fan needs replacing, would it make any difference if I opt to replace it with a 3-pin fan? Will this be a problem?

  1. Three pin fans are not speed controlled by your motherboard and will run a high speed (and noisy) unless you use a fan speed control. It will take a bit of experimenting to get the best speed for cooling and noise level with occasional continued monitoring. You may find you need a higher setting for summer and during heavy usage/gaming. I prefer staying with a 4pin set up since your motherboard controls this for you.

    You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
