Default Sunbeam 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" fan replacement

just wanting to know if its possible to switch out the fan that comes with this cooler.

and if its possible, is it recommended by you guys.

it blows @ 90cfm, witch is good.
but i was thinking of putting a silverstone fan on it.
Newegg.com - SILVERSTONE FM121-B 120mm Case Fan - Case Fans
@ 110cfm with a nice controller for my floppy slot.

I don't see why not

I don't know how the stock fan performs, but I suppose there are better fans out there

Yes, you can switch the fan with something else and that Silverstone will suffice.

Why not a Scythe S-Flex or a Yate Loon?

well, there are certain companies that i really like, and this squeezes out the possibility of my trying out new companies (new to me) on important pc parts.

my good list (in no order) that i try to find their products first:

evga
asus
silverstone
gigabyte
lite-on drives
others too, but yet to officially make my list

my bad list that i try to aviod:
aptevia or aspire
asrock
jetway
intel (mobos only)
logitech (these speakers i have are horrid)

so there are alot of companies with good reviews that i have yet to make a purchace with.

im trying out sunbeam's prodect for the first time based on reviews from others, i think thats enough exploration for me in a day

but if you want the real reason i chose silverstone, it would match my setup better overall. with the fan controller being mounted just below mysilverstone 5.25 bay converter, it will really make my no name case look like a silverstone branded case ...hehe thats not the real reason, but a good one.

this has got to be one of the worst looking cases.
i wanted my silverstone knob! (joke)


everytime i go to buy a new case, something just takes over, and i end up just upgrading something else instead.
i cant seem to commit to a new case (this case has seen intel celeron 2.0, my original build like 5 or 6 years ago)
