I'm looking for a heat sink that will fit nicely on my gigabyte 990fxa ud3 am3+ motherboard. I have an average sized cpu case the NZXT alpha. Been 40c idle and up to 95 on load with my 8120 and I'm extremely concerned.
Go for the hyper 212 EVO awesome performance and its really cheap. Make sure you have a good 120mm intake at the front and 120mm output at rear. If you were to remove the 3.5 inch drive bay you would get much more airflow in that case, you could then attach your HDD to a 5.25 bay or in the FDD bay. Just some ideas but you def want a directed HSF that vents out of your case.
