I'm putting a PC together for a family member, but it needs to be somewhat quiet. Was wondering if the heatsink/fan that comes with the non k Intel cpu's since Sandy bridge for the i3,i5,i7 are all interchangeable, basically is it the same heatsink/fan ?

second question: are they silent ? Average noise, below average, above average ?

Third question: Does the RPM change with temps or is it a fixed speed ?

They haven’t changed since the i-series has come out if I remember correctly. And yes they are quiet enough for the average person.

I would say average...I never hear mine over top the other 6 fans in my pc...so I would say average?

Rpms are based on the temp of your cpu and probably other sensors.
