Title pretty much says it.
I have been having trouble with my stock cooler. I sit quite close to my pc and the noise is a real problem. All my other fans are reasonably quite, but my CPU fan is getting really annoying.
I havent overclocked yet and I am getting idle temperatures of about 34 to 35 and when my CPUs are at 100% temperatures go up to about 50.
I am looking for a quiet CPU cooler. I would prefer air, but im not sure why. Also I would really like it to have (blue) LEDs because I think how a computer looks is just as important as how it performs.
AM3 motherboard: ASRock 890 GM Pro3 890GX
Case: NZXT Tempest EVO - its pretty big
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
GPU: ATI Sapphire Radeon 4650
RAM: Crucial 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Ballistix, CL8(8-8-8-24) 1.65V Unbuffered Non-ECC
HDD: Western Digital 640GB Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 32MB Cache - OEM Caviar Black
Cooling: 2 x 120mm fans, 2 x 2 120mm blue LED fans, 2 x 2 140mm fans
Lights: Dual 12" Blue Cold Cathode & Nexos Blue LED Light Strip
PSU: 450W akasa
My room is at about 20C to 25C mainly because my TV gives off so much heat.
I am looking to spend under £40, but i can be easily persuaded to spend more if needed
Any help and recommendations would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance
The Cooler Master Hyper 212 is an amazing air cooler for the price. You won't be disappointed with the preformance.
The Noctua NH-D14 will give you an awesome performance but it is huge and heavy.. A good alternative will be the Thermaltake Frio.
I was looking at a few other fans:
-Thermaltake Blue Orb FX ~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T8u82_rpGPg
-Zalman CNPS9500 LED
-Zalman CNPS9700 LED
Can anybody give any advice on these?
Do you plan to overclock your CPU?
Running a CM V10 here. Never looking back.
CM V10 is way too expensive.. Try the Thermaltake Contac 29, it will be just fine to replace the stock cooler..
The best heat sink you can afford is the Titan Fenrir.
Thermalrite Ultra 120 Extreme has never let me down :)
Is quite large and heavy though.
