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
EVGA GTX460SE
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 @ http://www.msi.com/product/mb/790GX-G65.html#/?div=CPUSupport

    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. http://www.msi.com/product/mb/790GX-G65.html#/?div=CPUSupport

    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 http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103934 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.
