I built my pc in september, and playing bf4 i get cpu temps as high as 62 and would like to get a cpu cooler other than the stock one i have. Which one would be the best for around $50?
And also my gpu temps can reach 70 so is there any way to keep that cooler?

62C for you CPU with BF4??? Are you sure youre using the stock cooler? lol, those are very low for the stock cooler.
And the GPU temps are fine until about the mid-high 80s, but to keep them cool, set a fan profile with MSI Afterburner to whatever speed you want.

Wow good news to hear. I've been worried about playing to much because of the temps, but if these are ok i guess i will probably leave it alone. What is msi afterburner?

MSI Afterburner is a free program that allows you to Overclock your GPUs and set the desired fan speeds on your GPUs to whatever you want, it also has a video recording feature to record your screen.

Is there anything I have to worry about with changing fan speeds?

There is nothing to worry about when changing fan speeds...just noise i guess.
But be careful if you Overclock, maybe even watch a video on how to OC you GPU before you do anything crazy :pt1cable:
