I'm currently running a Phenom II X4 965 at 3.4Ghz. The stock fan is just way to loud. I idle at 41-42°C and under load I'm at anywhere from 52-58°C. Sometimes they'll jump up to 63°C. Those temps sound iffy to me...maybe a little high. But I have 2 questions...I want the new fan and heat-sink to cut down on the noise. If my temps need to be lowered than that would be an addition to fixing the noise problem.
Can anyone suggest a fan/heat-sink to suite my needs? I'm also on a budget so if there are ones out there that offer a good bang for your buck, I'd like to check them out.
Anything will do actually...
If I can get enough money to buy the Noctua NH-U12P I will. However, if something comes up ill stick with the Hyper212+, or the HyperTX3. I'm just tired of running processor intensive programs and hearing "WEEEEEEEEEE" coming from my processor fan.
