  1. Yes, an aftermarket HSF should not be as loud or just replace the stock fan with a lower DbA fan.

    Your temps seem a little high for stock temps unless you are looking a 89c ambient temps in your room. Based on those temps, I would recommend an HSF for that reason alone. Of course, the thermal compound may be too thick or the HSF isn't fully seated, which will all effect your CPU temps.

  3. ambient room temp was high,once I turned on the ac my temps dropped to about 40 celsius is this about right?
  4. On a stock HSF, your temps seem about right maybe a little high but nothing to be majorly concerned about.
