Need suggestions on cooling fan and heat sink upgrade Tags: Fan CPUs Components Product Last response: June 25, 2012 7:12 PM in Components Share mindfire June 25, 2012 6:48:19 PM Hello, Currently I am running AMD Phenom(TM) II X4 965 Black Edition, with Asus M4A78LT-M LE AM3 mobo. (I believe I need 120 mm fan?) The CPU temperatures are going way above 62 degree which AMD suggested max temp. What new CPU fan and heat sink would you guys recommend? The default ones are awful. Also tried using different thermal paste, but the effect is minor. ps. the current CPU temp is 75 degree on full load. 50 on idle More about : suggestions cooling fan heat sink upgrade C12Friedman a c 86 à CPUs June 25, 2012 7:01:28 PM Depending upon your case size, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - very popular found here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or even the more expensive (and a bit better) Cooler Master TPC 812 here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Again, you need a rather wide case (7"+) to fit those... There are also low profile types if those are too large. mindfire June 25, 2012 7:03:43 PM ahhh, its CoolerMaster Elite 310 Mid Tower Gaming Case Dimension (W) 191 x (H) 437 x (D) 468 mm (W) 7.5 x (H) 17.2 x (D) 18.4 inch Which would be great O.o? ps. does UK have newegg xD Related resources Upgrading PSU,GPU and CPU heat sink fan - Forum CPU Heat sink and Fan - Forum Is Heat Sink Better than Water Cooling ? - Forum CPU Heat Sink suggestions - Forum Would a new computer case help more with temperatures or a heat sink ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
