So, I need help choosing an Aftermarket Fan!

Mobo: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3

CPU AMD Phenom X4 965

Do want something to expensive or over the top, not really looking to overclock. Any recommendations?

If u are on budget, do u need 16GB RAM?

8GB is for the gaming, the sweet spot.

16GB is for creativity tasks, like video or 3D rendering and so on?

BTW, what is your windows? x64bit?
August 8, 2012 10:07:47 PM

It might only be 8GB, the seller said it was 16GB but it says 4x2GB on them and there is 8 slots but only 4 in the case he sent.

I have both versions 32 and 64 bit.

Vista 32 and 7 64, I will be using the 7 64bit once my new PC is in :)

U have 4 slots. Get 2x4GB RAM not the old 4x2GB. Do u have a link for the RAM?

August 8, 2012 10:19:22 PM

I already have the RAM, I bought as it was cheap, asked him if it worked said it does and there are no problems with it so I hope it works. Could ask him for a refund, I asked him if it was 4 sticks he said yeah.

What u paid for it?
a b à CPUs

That's the bad part.

If it is 4x2GB, than u doubled your chances that 1 stick will be bad or will die on you.

And u killed the upgradebility to use more RAM, since all is filled up.

I would return it.

£60, do you have MSN or something so we talk more quickly?

Thanks!

Sorry, I don't use that.....

If u sit by the screen, I can reply fast.
August 8, 2012 10:31:54 PM

Ok, So what do you recommend?

The RAM here is 4 Sticks of 4GBX2
August 8, 2012 10:42:32 PM

Ok, Thanks!

I will ask for a refund from him, providing I can contact him not seen him a few weeks... :/

Great, I would too.
August 8, 2012 10:49:42 PM

Sorry, one more quick question!

The CPU has thermal paste on it from the previous Cooler(didn't fit) and I'm not really confident to clean it off or what to use. Can you just recommend something to remove and what paste to use when I get my new Fan here(This won't come with thermal paste pre-applied will it?)

http://www.ebuyer.com/139175-arctic-silver-arcticlean-3...

I found that but weather that is any good or not idk

Thanks, also what material I should use... Is tissue ok?
a b à CPUs
August 8, 2012 10:50:59 PM

U can use that or Isopropyl alcohol 90% or more.

And some coffee filter, as that paper is the best : )
a b à CPUs
August 8, 2012 10:53:16 PM

Tissue leaves residue. Don't use it. Do not touch it with bare finger also.
August 8, 2012 10:55:15 PM

What if I already used a bit of tissue already very lightly?

CPU Core: Remove thermal material with ArctiClean 1 and 2, a xylene based
cleaner, (Goof Off and some carburetor cleaners) or high-purity isopropyl alcohol
and a LINT FREE cloth (a lens cleaning cloth or coffee filter).
August 8, 2012 11:01:21 PM

Ok, Thank you. :)

I wouldn't use it. But if u will not OC, u don't need to get any cooler now.

It will work fine.

U should rather get SSD drive.

That will make your PC act like it some speed daemon : )
August 8, 2012 11:15:21 PM

I don't have a cooler that fits, the stock cooler didn't fit which came with it. :)
