Holy fuck. Why is the fan that came with this thing so god damn noisy? It has this drony sounds to it and keeps cycling up and down in speed at the slightest amount of load or heat on the CPU.
My older 4770 was quieter overall and less annoying even when the fan was full blast.
Is this how this thing is or can i get a better fan to put on the heat sink?

seems fine to me. i guess if you want to spend $40 on a different fan and some copper you're welcome to.
>using the non-rice easy to install low-profile OEM-created cooling apparatus them complain it's too noisy because it's a cheap POS that costs about $1 to make and it designed to use the least amount of cooling capability as possible
>using the non-rice easy to install low-profile OEM-created cooling apparatus
that "apparatus" is designed to be as cheap as possible and deliver the absolute minimum cooling performance needed for the chip to work properly. It is loud and shitty, so you either buy a proper cooler (evo 212 for example) or just fucking deal with the noise
>buying high-end CPU
>doesn't buy a high-end cooler
you deserve it.
hey bro. my 4770 stock one worked find for over two years. didn't know this one would be complete shite.
I'd like to just get one where i didn't have to replace the heat sink. Not overclocking this thing or anything. Does run hotter than my 4770 though.
Dumb fucks like you is why Intel stopped shipping CPU coolers at all with their K series consumer chips and ship water coolers with their high end
