Phenom II 940 system, overclocking (a good cooler)? Tags: CPUs Overclocking Cooling Phenom Last response: December 8, 2009 7:14 PM in CPUs Share cnor December 7, 2009 6:56:25 PM Hi everyone, I have a phenom II 940 based system, and anyway (in the future) I am planning on overclocking. I am wondering what a good cpu cooler would be, and what results I could expect (I'm hoping for 3.5ish, nothing too crazy) and still have decent temperatures. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is my motherboard, and also I would like to overclock the RAM a bit which is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (I am worried the tall heat spreaders might limit my selection of cpu coolers).

Be sure to double check the clearance on your motherboard/case, these heatsinks are rather large | Report abuse roofus December 8, 2009 6:32:06 PM Running a Thermalrite Ultra 120 Extreme on my P2 and it stays very cool. Way cooler than I expected actually. | Report abuse cnor December 8, 2009 7:14:35 PM Thanks guys, looked at all of them but the only one I could find online was the Dark Knight one, also would my tall RAM heat sinks interfere with it? | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Phenom II 940 system, overclocking (a good cooler)?> Related ressources: ForumAMD Phenom II 940 , need help overclocking it ForumPhenom II x4 940 cooler question ForumPhenom II 940 BE bottlenecking 7850?
