Hello, i have built my new computer not so long ago 2-3 days ago. I have the AMD Phenom II 955 Black Edition with the stock cooler. The damn cooler is sooo LOUD! my temps when IDLE is 39-41 Celcius and running on Load 46-50 Celcius. Should i replace the thermal paste or something? I have copper paste that might help? And the heatsink is Copper so will this cool my CPU Down if not do you guys know a good CPU cooler thats silent but cools very well like my CPU down to IDK 35-37 on idle and 40-42 on Load? for under the price of 50 bucks? Well i live in Norway so stuff aint that cheap so... hmm IDK lets see what you guys got.

what is your definition of load? 46-50 seems low. Run prime for 2hours and see what the peak core temps are.

the scythe mugen 2 is a good cooler. The titan fenrir is even better.

Are you planning on Overclocking your system much? If you are not into severe OCing, I would recommend the Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro, it is fairly cheap, cools pretty well and is very quiet.

It wont be able to cool like the ones Somebody mentioned, but if you are not extreme OCing it should be fine. Below is a link with the description of it!

However, apparently it is not ideal for AMD boards due to the way it must be placed. This review may be helpful,2...
