I am installing a Gigabye MOBO with aa AMD Athlon II X2 240 dual core processor. I'm putting it in a micro case and have space restrictions. Where can I get a good small heatsink and fan? The Thermaltake TR2-R1 I purchased is too big.
I think the stock heat sink may have been too large. I got the Thermaltake TR2-R1 to fit by beating it with a hammer. Not really. It's quite tight. If I can find a suitable good sink, I'll swap it out.
Hey, I have three mid ATXs sitting here running, and an IBM Micro. I wanted something nice looking that I could use in my living room for a media center. I started to give my laptops away because they are an abomination. Not really. The ThinkPads just aren't fun. I'll keep one for traveling and one for us in the kitchen exclusively for recipes and cooking. I'm 70 years old and haven't really got into computers.
you could go with a liquid cooled block or something i guess but your running a risk in liquid cooling... water+electronics= disaster waiting to happen... but if the stock heat sink is to big im not sure what to recomend because you need heat disapation or you could risk overheating the cpu.
