Hello,
I purchased this cooler 21 months ago. Now it has started making rattling at high RPM.

Whenever the fan reaches 2400+ rpm, rattling starts. Now if i touch the fans side, rattling goes away for a while then comes back. After this point, fan rattles at >= 2000 rpm OR when fans RPM falls down quickly. I have refitted the fan several times but problem still persists. I have checked the screws holding the brackets which have black pads on them but they doesn't seem to be loose.

This maybe under warrenty since its suppose to have 2 year warranty from company and its not over yet so i will be going tomm to Goregaon Service Center to replace the fan.

If i have to purchase a new 92mm PWM Fan which will fit this cooler, will it be available at Lamington Road or anywhere else?

Difficult to find at Lamington Road since 120MM is much common these days. Although you can find it online.

I spent an entire day searching for a 92mm PWM fan on lamington road, andheri and didnt find any. Finally the cooler master's service center at goregaon east sold me one for 800Rs and gave me 1 year warranty and it was kind of urgent so i bought it.

So i did a mistake of buying a cooler with 92mm fan. Won't happen again :-D

92mm heatsinks are making a comeback now. I recently received these review samples:

CM probably would have shipped a newer one as replacement. their FB activity is pretty high nowadays.

92mm LED fans are tough to find here. Your only option may be import it from abroad [ or check newegg india or amazon usa / global site ].
