Hello people! So I recently made my first computer, but i'm having some heat problems with my CPU. On some games, my CPU goes up to 45-48 degrees Celsius. I'm using the stock fan, and I have the AMD fx-8350.
Now I was thinking about buying the scorpion evo 212 fan due to the great reviews, and i'm hoping that would bring the temperature down to maybe 30-35 degrees Celsius. Does this sound right?
Any suggestions on good heat-syncs?
My budget is around $40.
45 - 48 is fine with a stock heat sink.
Yup get a Cooler Master Evo 212. It's a brilliant cooler. I'm planing to get one too for my i7 4770.
However make sure that it does not interfere if you've got High Profile RAMs like the Corsair Vengeance.
45 C Is a perfect temperature if they dont go above 65C dont worry, dont bother with a aftermarket cooler if your not overclocking. I have a i5 4670k water cooled and it goes up to 65 C Overclocked at 4.4ghz 1.3v
