  1. Yes, that is a good little cooler for the Phenom II X4. But why are your core temps reading 0C?
  2. Now i have purchased hyper tx3 and my highest temp goes down from 71 to 59 degree C. but my graphic card goes from 60 to 70 degree C. it's because of my new sound card it's ASUS - Xonar DG 5.1 ,, i have simple cabinet ,, can this type of heat from my graphic card can damage my sound card if yes what should i do..
  3. these temp are noted while gaming ,,, idel it is not more than 45 degree C for Cpu,, and Gpu too.
  4. 70°C is an OK temp for GPU under load and should not damage anything, your CPU temp is OK as well but it is apparent that the sound card is restricting airflow to the GPU. Do you have any case fans in your cabinet or the possibility to add them?
  5. ya,, there are three possibilities 1. side panel 2. rear 3. below in front ,,
  6. Best answer
    Adding case fans will help your temps further I would start with front as intake and back as exhaust.
