AMD A8-3870K Unlocked (Socket FM1) - CPU
ASRock A75M-ITX FM1 AMD A75 - MB
CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB DDR3 - RAM
Western Digital Caviar Green WD20EARX 2TB - HDD
Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case SFX 300W 80Plus Power Supply - Case


Hello, I had been looking for an aftermarket CPU heat sink and fan for my CPU since the stock one is to loud and does not do much cooling. The case specifies that the case can hold up to a 85 mm fan, but I am having trouble finding one with the correct socket type (FM1). I would hope to find one that could handle some gaming since I plan on putting a GPU in there too. Do you guys have any ideas, because I am stuck.



Thanks Again.

The CoolerMaster Hyper Evo is the go to cooler in recent times. It's cheap, quiet, comes with a good fan, and cools well. Not sure how wide your case is, but it's very recommended. If its a shorter case you may need to get a horizontal type cooler.

+1 to this. Its the best bang for the buck even today. I would also suggest if you have ram that does not poke up to high you could add another fan onto it to get a push pull going to give even more airflow and cooling.

Thanks for the quick replies guys! I dont think I have enough room for the push pull since I have large RAM heat sinks, but that cooler looks great!
