Can I ask what temps you're currently getting?

I used to have the same CPU and it idled around 34C/50C underload, on a Thermaltake TR2.

If you're thinking of getting a new CPU cooler, is it really worth spending $20-$30 on a new one when you're probably better off upgrading unless you plan to overclock that is.

Those temps look fine to me, especially with it being summer now and ambient temperatures are up.

I wouldn't bother spending any money on it. I assume you're on a stock Intel cooler?

I honestly would save your money and not bother, its running within specifications.

Save up and upgrade the whole system because an E6300 is considered ancient now....

Scythe Mugen2 RevB. Universal CPU HSF. It's awesome, versitile, and can move with you in an upgrade, as socket 478, 775, 1156, or 1366 all work.
