I am using the intel stock cooler right now for my i5 750. It is not overclocked and temps are 50C while browsing. This seems pretty bad to me. When gaming temps go to 70C.
I was looking at some cpu coolers under 50 bucks. I found a CM hyper 212 evo for $34 brand new. Also a hyper T4 for the same price and a TX3 evo for $22.
Are any of these good. Which one should I get?
i am also planning to overclock it a bit to 3.4 or 3.6ghz.
Does anyone have a better cooler that is cheap.
Your temps are on the high side, but they are not in any sort of danger zone and within Intel's expected specifications. Did you try "de-dusting" your fans and airflow first? Or, it could be something really cheap like the fan on the cooler failing, which can be replaced for under $10 without having to mess with the heatsink itself or thermal paste.
Still, the hyper 212 is a widely regarded cooler if you chose that route, though one typically does not need to spend more than $20 for a CPU cooler it hey don't plan on overclocking. I think Intel's stock coolers go for $10 about.
