Need someone to recommend a new, better Cpu fan please

I would like someone to recommend a link where I can buy a CPU fan - my current fan doesn't stay fastened tightly to the cpu - thank you!

Current specs:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68M-D2H LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000 BX80623I52500K

  1. First of all, neither of those links work. Second, do you mean the entire cooler or just the fan? Third, what is your budget?
  2. Sorry for the broken links, just copied them from my newegg email receipt. My response: the entire system (both cooler-heatsink and fan) and my budget is whatever it takes to keep my cpu within the normal cooling range. Thank you in advance.
  3. What case do you own?
  4. Best answer
    As SR-71 Blackbird said, case size is important. If your case can fit it, go for the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo. If that's too big, the TX3 Evo would be a good choice.
  5. Thank you for the suggestions. I'll check both of them out!
  6. I'm leaning towards the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo as suggested above. Can anyone tell me if they think that will fit my case? Thank you
  7. Well your case is 200mm wide and the Hyper 212 Evo is 159mm tall. I couldn't find the specific space the case has for the cooler, but my guess is it will fit. If it somehow doesn't, you can just return it and get a TX3 Evo instead (at least if you order from Newegg).
