    You can still replace it by a real silent and reliable fan if the constructor have left the standard connection (btw blame Gigabyte to use a non standard one), or use a a good passive radiator or a watercooler as nearly every WC maker work on it (Yes we are not the only ones to hate chipset fan lol).
    The good point is the removal of those plastic doing this ;)


    Sadly no, they are heavy used due to their small size as they need more RPM for the same amount of air than an higher diameter of fan, on server side there is heavy use of 40, 50 and 60Mm fan and they fail a lot more than 120 or 140Mm of same quality grade (that sadly are unusable on short U device), when i was working 40 was the most that we had in stock for intervention.
    Passive is better but sometime you can't do without fan...

    looks nice an all, but since using MSI more, i'v found there bios support quite appalling, having bought one of their high end X470 boards, that they let out to dry without being updated as much as the lower end 450 boards, small bios size etc. Lest mention their weird forum that you get chastised when you mention any help regarding MSI products and say they are nothing to do with MSI yet is advertised on their main site. Odd really. Certainly wouldn't use them again.

    Yes of course (this is under the NB brand in here) it was one of the best brand (and not too expensive on PRO) but the problem was the same if you compare their 40/50 life with 120 life...
    It's a RPM/ Usage Time/ Wind (pressure and volume) not a quality or a brand problem.
