So I've been very happy with my computer which I've had for the past 6 months and the specs arent the best in the world but they get the job done, can play bf3 at a good 50 fps on high and many other games.

But i've been experiencing alot of issues with the cooling, I think this is to do with my gpu and cpu as I'm only using a stock fan, so I implemented a case fan blowing towards my gpu which seems to help sort of, But i'm looking for some serious cooling and I'm really not sure as to what is compatible with my current hardware. Any solutions with the cooling, and what hardware would work with be really appreciated.

Here are my specs:

For cooling the GPU, there nothing really worth doing unless its outright water-cooling it. Which I suspect is a bit outside your realm of experience :lol:  All you can really do is just make sure there is adequate airflow through the case so hot air isnt cycled back through its fans.

For the CPU there is plenty, and the most obvious is to get an aftermarket heatsink.
The Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO is the go-to budget heatsink and is compatible with just about every socket you could buy.

Thanks for the reply, I'll look into some case fans and proper airflow. And definitely pick up one of those fans
