i first used a rosewill rcx-z1 and wen i would turn overclock geinie i guess it would BSOD
so i decided to turn overclock genie off and buy a new cpu fan so i bought the Cooler Master Hyper N520
and i see 80c @ full load..before it was 84c and higher

i was wondering if i should buy a all in one liquid cooler on sale for black friday
and will it make my cpu run cooler?

crosair h60
-or-
antec kuhler 620
-or-
stay with my hyper n520?

any suggestions?

mybuild:
-msi fm2-a75ma-e35
-AMD a10 5800k

Stay with the Hyper N520. Are you sure you have seated the cooler properly?

well in my knowledge yes, i put about 2 grain of rice and used my fingre (around plastic) to spread it even. i did notice a bit of paste that was squeezed out through the sides

Usually its better to just put half a pea sized and let the pressure spread the paste by itself. Try again just to be sure.

Follow the pea method., check that the Cooler is also even to your mobo.
