    I have a self-built desktop computer with all the parts from Newegg. However, after a few months, I realized the CPU fan that came with the CPU was very loud. As a result, I want to switch to a liquid cooling system, but I do not trust myself enough to replace it myself. Does anyone know of Fry's Electronics will help me replace the fan if I buy liquid cooling from there?

    They will install a closed loop (the only type they sell) system over at the service counter for a fee. CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 for example. From my experience, get a well reviewed non liquid heatsink instead.

    It's not worth the hassle and cost, just do it yourself. If its a closed loop system its nothing more than installing an awkward shaped fan with tubes.

    ^ what frysemployee said. They also come with a manual with installing instructions... it usually has pictures too. They do offer the service if you still opt out.

    Go with a high end air cooler, closed loop coolers have more points of failure (fan can fail, pump can fail, it can leak). They are easy to install and will save you the outrageous installation fees. But if money is no concern, and you just aren't handy at all... then go for it.

    ty for your advice guys. I'll probably end up buying an air cooler instead. Does anyone have a number for the service fee?

    Check out the big, ugly Zalman fans...they look like shit, but they cool amazingly well, last forever and are reasonably priced.

    I have owned 2 of the Corsair closed loop coolers, and both had acquired block pump problems....1st totally seized shortly after 1 yr, and the 2nd would intermittently "stick" after 6 months of use. I thought the first was a fluke...and learned my lesson with the second. Never again. Luckily in each case, my motherboard shut down when temps got too high, and no damage was done to it or my chip.

    I've had a Corsair H60 for 3 years. Never had any problems. Opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one.

    True, but not everyone is as fond of showing his as you are.
