so i was wondering how much damage this optional fan i have can do since it says on the paper that came with it - "For use in junction with passive cooler or water cooler only. Installing the optional fan with an active CPU cooler will interfere with internal cpu cooler airflow and endanger system stability."
i had put it on the heat spreader on the motherboard around the cpu -
and well it ran 110% fine untill windows got done partitioning the hard drive and when it went to restart after it was all done it was hell from there. i figured its a regular fan that plugs right into the motherboard fan prongs and it wouldent even make a difference...or did it?
i jsut wanted to know how much damage can be done or maybe if i had done so already?
