Seeking advice for heatsinks.

Hello guys ,

:hello:

I am looking for advice about which heatsinks I should buy.

I've looked around but the internet didn't come through for me this time.

Budget should be around 20$-50$

My current settup is this:

Case:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147144

Motherboard:

CPU:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103923

Right now I'm running with the stock cooler and I think my PC might explode at some point since the weather around here is pretty crazy.

It's running at about 54c+ at all times and when I launch a game it skyrockets to about 64c~, which is pretty alarming.

If you need more information on my system feel free to ask.

Thanks in advance.

  1. You have a bad heatsink install.
  2. Depending on the height of your case, I would recommend the hyper 212 Evo (6.26" in height)

    Also have a variety of other coolers to choose from. Take a look at the link below for your reference.

    The hyper 212 Evo is a good choice but can be a tiny bit confusing to install if you haven't done one before. If you want to keep the cost low, this is a good HS/F and very easy to install on an AMD socket/retention bracket: http://www.amazon.com/Arctic-Cooling-Freezer-Cooler-DCACO-FP701-CSA01/dp/B002G392ZI I have them on several budget builds and they cool excellent.
  4. I'm running the hyper 212 evo with my FX8120 right now and i have it OC to 4.0 ghz.It keeps it nice and cool,i did buy another fan to push\pull.
