hi there im really stuck atm i have an a55 fm2 board with an a8 5600k in it but i also have a hd 7850 gpu so i really need help as to which is the best cpu i should switch to as i hear having and apu and gpu is not the best option but im restricted with the fm2 board please help
well see thats the thing im not really having any issues as such its all very nice the one problem i do see is just that i have a very high cpu temp all of the time evn when idle when idle its at about 60c and when im gaming its pushing 85c it scares me a bit sometimes.
Unlike the Hyper212 EVO (ignore the URL; it IS the EVO they tested), the Gaia never throttled, although it wasn't always the coolest depending on the fan used. Both got awards, but the Gaia is usually cheaper as well, and up to 6db quieter (stock), making it the better choice.
As long as it is not a slim case, either of those coolers should fit. Which case is it? You might need to remove a side fan (if there is one). What fans are in your case? Make sure they are arranged to create a flow through the case, typically front to back.
i got way down and measured it properly because i was measuring from my vga slot the last time so i measured straight from the motherboard and it seems to be 17cm from motherboard to the closing of my case
