I just replace my motherboard and installed an intel i7 13700k. I need a cpu fan and notice that they vary widely in size and cost. What criteria should I use to find the proper fan to buy?

 

Thanks in advance for the advice,

Hello, @rpetrie  

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities. I will gladly assist you here. 

 

Regarding the CPU requirements, you need to buy a fan that is equal to or higher than your Processor's Base Power (125W), as you can verify here: Intel® Core™ i7-13700K Processor

 

Also, you need to verify that the CPU fan heatsink is compatible with the CPU socket, which is LGA 1700, the socket used by the CPU cooler must be the same as the one used by the Intel® CPU. You can compare the Processor Base Power and socket information of the Intel® CPU information with the Processor Base Power and socket information of the CPU cooler. More details on How to Know if the Heatsink Is Compatible with the Intel® Processor article. 

 

I hope this information helps you with your CPU fan decision. Please let us know if there's anything else I can help you with.
