I am setting it up on a mini ATX and the intel fan is in the way of the motherboard power cable - it will work, but the power cable is stretched over the CPU fan. With the fan unplugged (but the heatsink is still on) and the case open, the CPU temp is 39deg cel.

That is when it is sitting at the bios PC health screen.

The intel fan is also really annoyingly loud.

So, can i run it without the fan? If so, do I still need the heatsink on? Any ideas on mounting the heatsink without the fan?

If not, can anyone recommend a better fan that is lower profile and quieter?

Thanks in advance!
