Question Heatsink Fan Replacement

I was thinking since I am upgrading my comp with a new case and hardware... is it ok to take a nice blue LED case fan (80mm) and install that blue case fan on the heatsink instead of the stock Heatsink Fan?

hmm, normally the fans that come with the heatsink have more RPM's than normal, but at the same time these fans does come with smaller size.

as if your heatsink already has 80mm fan, then from BIOS, check ur fan RPM, as if they match or even below the rpm's of the fan u r trying to install, then NIKE (means Just Do it!)
