Need a new CPU Fan/Heatsink

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My stock AMD Phenom II X4 940 B.E. stock heatsink and fan finally went out after 2 years and I need to find a new heatsink. Well, not so sure if it went out, but it is severely overheating. Like 50C idle and around 70-75 underload in BFBC2. So I just stopped gaming for the day.

Specs are
Antec 300 Case
4GB G.Skill Ram
nSpire 750W PSU
940 B.E. Processor @ 3.0Ghz

The socket is AM2+ and im looking for something under 65$ish.

Newegg has these

that I thought were interesting.

If anyone has suggestions that would be great.

Well the heatsync cant just "go out" its a piece of metal.
Most likely its clogged with dust.
Take it apart and clean it. But if you want a new one have a look at the cooler master hyper 212+

Yup. I have a Hyper N-520 in my Antec 300, it's ok but Hyper 212+ better IMO.

Hyper 212+ is the one I recommend to everyone starting out with aftermarket heatsinks. Not the best performer, but has very good performance for the price, and has a fairly simple mounting procedure (at least compared to a lot of other coolers... Scythe can probably take the crown for worst mounting system sold to date).

Alright, thanks

Saw that the Hyper 212+ for amd systems need to have a mounting plate on the back of the mobo. Newer antec 300's have CPU cut out, which is a square behind the cpu to do exactly that. I dont have the cpu cut out. So just learned alot by taking apart my media server (old gaming rig) and putting that back together. Couldn't get the damn power to work for an hour until I realized I had power plugins in opposite.

Good choice on some crash course training before hand, Because yea you will have to take the motherboard out. Worth the hassel.

Yea my antec 300 has the cutout on the back. Made it super easy to put in the 212+
