    I bought a matx fm2+ motherboard A8-5600K Quad-Core.

    I'm being spoiled and want to change the processors fan to a quieter one. Is there a quick fix of swapping fans or do I need to change the cooling system too?

    do you mean the stock amd cpu heatsink?
    I'm not sure exactly on the size but they are around 80-92mm, realistically you should probably replace the whole heatsink with a hyper 212
