2 day ago got my new PC components.
Gskill Ripjaws 1333 4GB
CM Storm Scout
Zalman Performa CNPS
and rest parts from old PC
Gigabyte GTX260 SO
Spinpoint F3 Samsung
So problem is that after I installed new windows and used the system a little bit my coolers stopped working - the Fan.
LSS- only spins if i push the fan and it will work. Already send an email to Zalman.
probably will have to RMA or get other one.
my question is witch cooler would be better for ~ 50$ . Maybe little OC, not much knowledge about this. But I am certain that stock wont be an option as I play many video games ...etc.
As long as you are not doing big overclocks, the stock heatsink will work perfectly fine. Why wouldn't it? That is the heat sink the company who MADE the processor supplied to use with it. There is no need in wasting money on aftermarket coolers.
Stock cooler is fine if you are not overclocking, and maybe a small overclock of around 400 MHz maximum.
A good cooler is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus, try getting it somewhere else for $15 - $20 less, it's a bit overpriced on newegg right now.
My only concern is that Hyper is a little bigger in L and H: 120 x 79.7 x 158.5 mm (L x W x H) vs Zalman 132(L) x 100(W) x 152(H)mm.
As for H I think it will fit I can close the side panel but L would it be a problem for my RAM and MB HeatSink? For now Zalman is ~7mm close to Ram and there is like ~3mm between Heatsink and MB Heatsink.
Anyone tried 890FX-UD5 with Hyper 212 +?
I was running the stock cooler on my 1055 and while it did a perfectly adequate job at stock clocks, damn it is noisy. I have just upgraded to a Hyper 212 plus and am so happy. It runs silent and cool, and is not as big as I thought. My mobo is a Asus M4A89G, and I'm having no trouble with clearances.
I own a CM Hyper 212+ which is a great cooler and much quieter then stock.
I would say it's fan is ok but not exactly quiet but far from annoying.
That being said i also have a Thermalright MUX-120 and it's dead quiet i have to look if the fan is spinning.
The Thermalright is tall though 160mm but only has a 2mm dimm intrusion which is perfect for those with tall ram.
