790-G65 CPU upgrade

Hi i'm relatively new to the community and just thought i'd give it a shot and ask you all a question about which CPU to upgrade running on my G65 MSI motherboard.

System specs are as follows;
4gb 1600 G-SKILL
AMD X3 445
Windows 7 64-bit
790-G65 MSI motherboard
700-wat rosewill green series 80+ etc...
and just recently installed a coolermaster hyper 212+

an alternate question would also be; does everyone's hyper 212+ make so much fan noise or is it just my build? perhaps i put the thermal paste on wrong? anyways thanks for reading everyone and hopefully i can solve this little problem of mine! :) thanks!

  1. Noise from a Hyper212+ will be the fan speed getting faster to cool down heatsink and cpu. Wrong application of thermal paste can effect cooling which may make fan work a tiny bit harder, but more likely the fan settings in bios wrong or not enough cool air coming in or hot air being exhausted.

    I'm guessing this is the 790GX-G65 motherboard, if so cpu list @

    A nice upgrade without breaking the bank would be a Phenom II X4 965 BE.

    I presume that you meant 790GX-G65 because MSI don't seem to have a 790-G65.

    The Hyper 212+ fan might be noisy because fan speed isn't set correctly in the BIOS.
  3. Yes sorry it's a 790GX-G65, and i see, how would i go to fixing this?
    and what do you guys think of the is this worth the extra coin if i'm upgrading
  4. Don't bother fixing it. The AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition is a good choice.
