    One of the "Twister bearing" fans on my Enermax 360mm radiator is making an awful grinding noise and I fear the end is nigh.

    I can't actually find an exact replacement anywhere (seems they don't sell this standalone?) But I have some LED Corsair SP120 fans in my closet.

    Can I use these on the radiator, or bad idea? FWIW I'm not overclocking.

    OK well the grinding was driving me crazy, so I just did the swap. With 3 Corsair SP120 RGB fans, the CPU is cooler and the fans are a lot quieter under load. I'm surprised the Enermax stock fans were so crappy.

    The corsair fans are not bad sand tailored to radiators though my experience is mostly with the 140mm ones.
