Default New fan for heatsink?

I was wondering if I'd see any real difference from the stock fan on the Xigmatek S1283?

Any suggestions on a fan?
Is it even worth it to buy a new fan for this?

I would say anything by Scythe.

These ones are pretty nice, a varying range of CFM vs dBA.

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, Digital Cameras and more!

As for the difference, it may help out a few degrees, but if you get a quieter fan, that's always a plus. :P

I've heard a lot about them failing from a couple friends, thats why I shy away from them.



Any other suggestions?

That one looks pretty good. Good CFM per dBA level.
