    posted this in hardware but thought be more relevant i here

    Is there anyway i could change the fan on my barton heatsink to a 80mm one without getting a new heatsink?

    Would bluetack work or would this cause more heat?

    Its just standard heatsink and fan btw.

    depending on the heatsink, cable ties may do the job....but i would go down the converter route, as it also funnels the air so airflow in not wasted
