RE: Can we replace stock Dell case fans? XPS 8500

I was looking to improve some circulation in my XPS 8500 by replacing the case fans with the new Corsair magnetic bearing fans.

I bought an XPS 8500 mainboard on eBay and installed it in a Cooler Master N200 chassis. I used a Cooler Master Vortex CPU cooler, fastened with screws. The NT200 has several fan mount points, so you cooling is not an issue.

 Something about the mobo wont detect the sensor on the stock fan and throw no fan detect errors at boot?

Nope, that is not true.
