New Cooler for Phenom X6

Even if it's in the dead of winter my 1075T X6 hits 61 C while gaming, which is very very hot for this particular CPU.
I'm looking at spire thermax eclipse ii.
One question: It says the fan speed is 2200RPM, while my stock fan reached over 5000. Does this mean that the Thermax doesn't go above 2200RPM, thus making it incompatible with my CPU?

  1. Larger fans typically have a lower RPM. Double the radius means double the G-forces on the outer part of the fan but so the RPM is reduced to reduce the G-force load while also keeping the amount of air moved lower (I think that doubling the fan size means 4 times the air flow, since you're dealing with area). Earth may only rotate once a day, but it spins at the equator at a blazing fast 1000 mph.
  2. nopes.it is compatible.speed is adjustible.BTW hyper 212 EVO is good cooler cause it is
