Okay so my lovely Coolermaster Cosmos 1000 is not very good at cooling so much with the stock fans. I need a new solution because my old system overheats when I play Diablo 3.

Was looking into liquid cooling but I don't know much about it

ASRock M3A770DE3
SAPPHIRE 11188-22-20G Radeon HD 6950 2GB
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black AM3 3.4Ghz
CORSAIR Professional Series HX750
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600

Will be my new parts

Oh and any other suggestions on cooling for just air cooling is also appreciated.

If air cooling is still an option these are good

I can run my Phenom II (the one in my sig) at 4GHz on the 212 and still keep good temps at load cheaper and as good as a cheap liquid cooler.

or a bit cheaper

I used this in the past 4GHz was a bit much (doable but getting at the high end of temps) for it but it was fine up to 3.8GHz mines a Thuban though your Deneb may make 4GHz on this.

Are you having temp issues with the Phenom II 965 now or is that new part? The 965 shouldn't really have temp issues at stock speed (or even when clocked to 980 speeds) with the stock cooler. If your having issues you may want to remove it clean off the old paste and reapply new paste.

i highly doubt that cosmo 1000 has poor airflow.just add high performance intake and exhaust fans and you are good to go.

Yeah I didn't think my case would my husband likes to put down my Coolermaster and say his Azza is better >.> because it came with 8 fans however from reviews the quality of the fans suck

Thanks for the tips! Do any of you know the highest I can go with replacement fans?

I was looking at the first one because of the 5 stars and 3,000+ reviews on newegg but I have to say the second one looks pretty awesome :x
