Good day guys,

I wanna ask a question about changing cpu fans. I wanna build a pc that has a green theme to it. But i wanna use a certain cpu cooler but doesnt come with a LED fan to it. SO, if i buy for example - https://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-cpu-cooler-rcxzaio92 . . .

  1. can I use after market FANS with green LED and install/change the stock fan that comes the https://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-cpu-cooler-rcxzaio92 ????
  2. would there be a problem that would eventual come with it?
  3. Is it possible? OR it cant be done? or Do you any cpu cooler (tower type) that comes with green LED with them. .

I need your help and expertise to enlighten me on this topic. . thanks a lot

if you buy a heatsink that has a normal standard fan, you can change it, but that rosewill heatsink doesn't have a standard one. The nicest and best green led fan is the cougar

so you can get any heatsink that uses a 120mm fan, this is an excellent budget heatsink
