So it was time for a new CPU fan, unfortunately I didn't realize how severely limited for space I was until I ordered one. The space in the case is fine, but I have this ultra crap motherboard that has components placed right around the processor, making a baseplate out of the question and basically forcing me to have a smaller cooling unit.
Ok, this is where you guys come in. I tried looking around but I really can't tell what I'm looking at mostly due to complete inexperience. I need a new CPU cooling unit for my computer but it's got to be something small, without a baseplate that fits right down on the plate above the processor. My factory unit is about shot. Anything else you need to know, feel free to ask. 550W Power supply if that's important. Very little hardware experience, personally.
