Hey guys, as you can see in the previous thread I was having a problem with how hot my CPU is running
I replaced the heatsink with a coolermaster hyper tx2 and my computer is still running at 55c while browsing the web and after only 4 minutes of playing oblivion it hit 61c, its an improvement on before where 3 minutes of oblivion would cause shutdown and it was idling at 60 but its still insanely high...
RiposoEterno has your case got air flow through it.how many fans in it.I've got same heatsink and fan you have but it's the first one they built.my cpu in bios say 29c when I check it and 36 to 40 full load.
Riposo your fan config is wrong.the back fan should exhaust and front and side panel should be intake no matter what.
and even you change the config your temp is still problematic.i think you should take you mobo out and push all the pins in and check again.because when install in the case you will be so lucky have all the pins pushed in.dont try to do it over and over again in the case.it will just be waste of time and at the end when you take it out you regrat you should have took it out before.
It's about the same price as the hyper and is known to cool well. When info regarding the cooling efficiency of a product is not given on the web page of the cooler, I take it off my buy list. That is unless a site like HardOCP has reviewed it and given the info in the review.
I have found that Arctic Cooling makes an excellent affordable product.
I run 5 systems and they all have Arctic cooling inside.
Also what is the ambient temp there the computer is located?
Your e6400 should not be so hot, even on the stock cooler.
