Do I need to buy a CPU cooler? CPU reaches 74c playing Far Cry 3 and sounds like a Jet engine!
I have an AMD FX 6300 with Stock cooler, when I play Far Cry 3 temps start to fluctuate between 60-65c, then after playing for 1 hour straight I saw 70-72 and 74c readings!!. If I believe AMD 6300 processors can handle a maximum of 62c.
Even playing a streaming video full screen from justin tv raises CPU fan speeds to 3900-4000 RPM and the CPU fan noise starts being annoying, playing far cry the CPU fan sounds like a Jet Engine, fortunately I play with headphones.
What after market cooler do you recommend? one that's silent and potent to cool off this noisy beast. Even the top of my CPU case feels like I could fry some eggs in there while playing Far Cry .. should I also buy an extra case fan to blow more air inside? I only have the Cooler master case fan and the CPU fan.
Here is a photo of my setup,
