In conclusion, if you're looking for quality in a heat pipe, you might want to consider a manufacturer other than Cooler Master.
What I could use now is a quality 120mm CPU fan. Any suggestions?
The CM Hyper 212+ is the most recommended CPU cooler here, PCPartsPicker, BaPC/Reddit, etc. Most reviews are done with stock fans, but I prefer using either the Noctua's or Yate Loon's with any cooler. I wouldn't touch any CM fans, for either cases or heat sinks. But it's hard to beat the efficient design of the HS.
Why would you bother with the shipping to RMA a fan??--
Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.
