I got a Phenom II x4 960T unlocked to 6 cores and runs rather hot..I have a Thermaltake heatsink and fan but it's not keeping it cool enough so right now I have a fan blowing into the case to help keep it cooled off...am not overclocking it any because of the heat problem
that's not a great cooler, in fact if i recall hardwaresecrets stating it performed the same as a stock cooler.
some budget coolers to check out are the
cooler master hyper 212+
cooler master tx3
all are under $30 and the cm 212+ is the best of those three although after rebate the loki is $5 on newegg. they all should fit and I ccan recommend even more expensive units if needed but the 212+ has great performance for your dollar.
Ok which others would you suggest.. I really hate have to have my fan blowing into the case and would like to be able to put the side back on the case..
