I am running the stock AMD heatsink that came with my 8350 CPU. When I am using the PC normally, the fan is spinning at only 3000RPM and the CPU is at 40 C. Whilst gaming, the fan cranks up to 4500RPM and CPU is at 60 C and the PC sounds like a jet engine. Can you guys recommend a very good CPU cooler which isn't too big. I have a small case so something like Noctua NH-U12S will be too big.

The best low profile CPU cooler for small cases is the Noctua NH-L12

A coolermaster hyper TX3 would be far better than stock. Otherwise, a coolermaster Seidon 120xl all in one liquid cooler.

How big is that compared to the stock AMD I am using. I don't mind if it is a bit bigger.

If you want to water cool, you could try this: (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-cpu-cooler-clw...). The Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo is another good option.


If the Noctua NH-U12S is too big then the 212 Evo will be too big.



You're right. That is TOO big.

The stock AMD cooler is 62mm high, the Noctua NH-L12 is 93mm with both fans, 66mm with only 1 fan.

How loud will the cooler be under load?
