Need help identifying CPU fan model

I got a prebuilt PC Specialist gaming PC from Curry's last year for Christmas, I was planning on upgrading my CPU and installing an SSD, but I wanted to check the compatibility between the new CPU that I will be getting (probably the i7-9700k) and the fan that was prebuilt into the PC, but have had no luck finding the model to put onto pcpartpicker.

PS: I know the image is horrific with the amount of dust, I gave it a very thorough clean after taking the picture :p.
PSS: Wasn't too sure where to post this, but since it was a prebuilt I posted it here.

Never mind, found the model on the website, turns out I probably need a new CPU Fan - requesting this forum post to be locked as my issue has been resolved.

That fan looks mega old school mate id be switching it out straight away.

That is probably the Frostflow (one of them anyway). Which explains why you can't find it reference to it anywhere. As to needing a new fan, that should not have failed in such a short period of time

Don't think it's failed, just not compatible with the upgrade.

But if the fan isn't compatible with the new CPU, I'd raise the question are you sure the CPU is compatible with the motherboard?

Yeah, I completely misread the second post by the OP without taking the first post into account.

That's something I researched - found out I'll need to upgrade my BIOS and on my motherboards website the version I needed for the new CPU was there. Thanks for raising the question as well as your response :)
