HSf problem

I am using a intel q8400 with the intel stock fan. in idle
core 0 = 56 core 1= 49 core 2= 53 core 3 =56

in load

core 0 =61-66 core 1=54 core 2- 59 core 3=62-67

in prime 95 the temp goes up to 72 on 1 core while the other core are <=72

is the load temp good? it is when i am playing just cause 2.

or should i buy a third party hsf

i cannot afford higher end hsf. the one i can go with is cooler master hyper tx3. will i see less temp when i install it

also will tx3 fit in codegenworld qori 3335 cabinet? how about performance of tx3?

  1. First does your case have any fans installed?
    Your load temps are at there limits, the core 2 duos should not run over 70c, I know your temps aernt that high while playing game but they are close.
    The hyper tx3 is a good choice and it should fit, Your case is 7.165in wide and the tx3 is 5.47in tall so you have a little over an inch and a half to play with, but I highly recommend insalling some good fans. 2 of these will work

  2. I had a 92mm cooler with a top mounted PSU and it fit just fine, with room to spare.
