Default Re: Upgrading Mobo, CPU, and Ram


I just wanted to ask a follow up question. I noticed with the CPU you recommended the reviews mention the CPU can get pretty hot and the CPU doesn't necessarily do an adequate job of keeping it cool.

Is there a non-stock CPU fan you would recommend to go with it?

The cooler does the job fine. The best thing to do is wipe the stock paste off and put some new stuff on. The amount Intel uses pretty much just blankets the thing and makes heat worse.

If you still want something else.
