Need suggestions on cooling fan and heat sink upgrade


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

  1. Depending upon your case size, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo - very popular found here
    or even the more expensive (and a bit better) Cooler Master TPC 812 here
    Again, you need a rather wide case (7"+) to fit those...
    There are also low profile types if those are too large.
  2. ahhh, its CoolerMaster Elite 310 Mid Tower Gaming Case

    (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
  3. Thank you very much! I'm going for your suggestion, hope this will solve everything :)
