The stock CPU fan is OMG LOUD!
It sounds like a gerbil-sized chain saw
So I'm looking around for an aftermarket cooler.
No overclocking, just some audio/video production.
I *am* interested in low noise level. The Hyper N520 seems to
come well recommended, but I'm open to other suggestions.
Amazon shows its dimensions as 5.6 x 4.8 x 2.4 inches.
Depending on how it orients when installed, that could work,
as long as the 2.4 in align to the snugly-placed memory slots.
Here's what I have:
Motherboard: ECS Golden Z77H2-A2X
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770
Memory: G.SKILL Trident X Series
Case: Fractal Design Define R4
