Default What do I need to buy or do to cool down my cpu?

My cpu is running hot. Very hot. During games we have to shut it off because it's getting up to 80 degrees celcius. What do I need to do or buy to cool it down? I already went into bios and maxed out the fan.

I have an AMD 3800 and a msi K8N-Neo4F

wow thats seriosuly hot.

You have

A) Zalman CNPS9500

B) Sythce Ninja

C) Tuniq Tower

D) Big Typhoon

E) A64 Freezer PRO

I reccomend most of them.

I have the CNPS9500 and my cpu runs incredibly cool and I highley reccomend it. I also highley reccomend the tuniq tower.

and Do not forget to buy some Artic Silver 5.

Put a TINY grain of it on the middle of the cpu, and let the cpu heatsink spread it out.

May the wind always be at your back and the sun upon your face, and may the winds of destiny carry you aloft to dance with the stars
