       I have an AMD FX-8350 the heat sink it came with is actually decently nice but the fan is not, I want to simply snap off the old one (its held in place with snaps) and snap on a new quiet one but for some reason my brain will not allow me to recognize what size fan is on there. I have not slept much recently. Its the same size fan typically used. I tried to measure it but my mind says nooo I will not let you know what size that is, did I mention I'm quite tired cuz I am.

 

Anyways what size fans on the heatsink shipped with the retail AMD FX-8350 black edition?

Are you wanting an entirely new heatsink and fan?  The ones that ship with the CPU are good for keeping it cool but they are cheap and can be loud.  If your case can handle a larger heatsink and fan, I'd go for one.

Typically the stock heatsink and fans are single units, it makes more sense to buy a complete HSF and reuse the AMD retention bracket on the motherboard.  I think most stock AMD fans are 70mm.

 

Smaller fans are typically louder and spin more quickly, large fans are the opposite and often move more air.

The fan size that is used on the stock cooler is 70mm. The best fan that i could find is this but do note that it will be quieter at the expense of higher temperature.

Thanks for this info though I have been able to figure it out myself already since I got a little sleep.

 

I'm aware the various types of coolers out there and yes those would be better but I just want to replace this cheap fan it came with without spending a lot of money because its just irritating as hell.
