Hey, new to this forum, but hoping someone has run into this and can offer some guidance. I should also mention that, while not completely computer illiterate, I am not well versed or practiced in these processes.
I've had my Predator G6-710 for about two and a half years, and a couple of things seem to be on the decline, and I want to replace them. The first of these is the cooler on my Intel i7-6700k. I'm not having any concerns with temperatures, hitting about 52º under load, but the fan is getting quite noisy and producing a hum that's very noticeable and irritating at idle. I'm wondering what sort of fan I could use to replace the one that came with it, as I'm concerned about it fitting in the case properly.
Second, I want to replace the Seagate 1TB HDD that came with it, as mine is starting to make some fairly audible clicking sounds when loading things and I'm worried it's on it's way out. Is there anything I need to be paying attention to specifically in terms of what connectors it uses, or will another of the same make be compatible with what's in here now. Sorry if that's confusing, again, not very literate in terms of the actual parts.
Thanks in advance for the help!
