Default What size is the case and CPU fans?

Hi,
What is the size of the case and the CPU fans? (like 80mm or 92mm)

I think that the CPU is 80mm and the case is 92mm but I'm not sure.

Can someone tell me what is the correct size?

Stock heatsinks are generally 60mm and your regular case fan is indeed 80mm although sometimes they will provide two sets of holes for 80mm and 92mm, however now-a-days throwing in 120mm's is starting to become normal in cases.

How are we supposed to know?


I have an older case and it has 2 60mm mounts in the back and one 80mm mount in the front.

Case fans are typically 80mm and the size of CPU fans is dependant upon the size of the heatsink.

Probably that my CPU fan is 60mm because it's smaller than a case fan (80mm)
