CPU

I installed an AMD phenom x4 9750 95w processor into my HP Pavilion p6203w - Sys Board M2n68-La narra5. These two are compatible, already checked with HP and AMD.

My question to you all is this. It seems to have a cooling problem. I used the stock fan from the HP pavilion to cool the phenom x4 and thermal paste. I notice the fan is a bit louder than normal. I played BC2 for about twenty min and the fan went into super overdrive. Thought a jet was taking off in my living room. OMG!!! LOL. I didn't know it could get that loud. So do I need to get the proper fan for the AMD Phenom x4? Will this solve the issue, or do I need to just return the CPU?

Thanks for any input,

Christyna

A better fan will help but have you checked your temps?
Something cheap like this will work http://www.ebay.com/itm/AMD-AM3-Socket-CPU-Fan-Heatsink...


I tried finding the temps, but amd catalyst seems to have removed that feature. All I could find is that the CPU usage was running from 60% to 90%. Not so sure that is normal either.

The CPU and the fan were both extremely hot, don't know the exact temp.

That is to hot, the cooler I linked to is the standard cooler for 125watt tdp AMD CPU's, should work.

Does it matter if my phenom is 95 or 125watts The one I have is 95watts will the fan still work with it being for a 125watt cpu.

Yes it will work fine it is just better since it can handle higher thermal load.
