Intel G620T Aftermarket Fan?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi Folks,

I'm building a media file server with the Intel Penitum G620T processor. This will be on a microATX motherboard in a micro ATX case.

Should I purchase an aftermarket cooler/fan for the CPU? Or is Intel's stock cooler sufficient. I don't plan on overlcocking it.

Thanks in advance...

Most all of Intel's stock cpu coolers are crap!
You'd benefit greatly, from a good aftermarket cooler!

If you're not going to overclock, then just use the stock cooling.

However, those push pins are extremely irritating, so I recommend finding some basically decent aftermarket cooling that uses screws.

I believe the Pentium G620T is a low-power 35-watt CPU. Stock cooling should be more than adequate for that. I think Intel uses the same stock cooler for all Sandy Bridge chips, so if it can cool a 95-watt i7 it should have no problem here.

The stock cooler that came with my i5-2500K looks exactly like the one that came with my E8400...

A file server in a micro ATX case will be a bit warm, so I would think a good after market cooler is a must.

Thank you guys. Everyone's reasoning is sound, and so I've decided that an aftermarket cooler is a good idea.

My case is the Fractal Design Define Mini. It appears that the Cooler Master Hper 212 Plus can fit in this case, but I haven't tried it yet (their website says they can support a CPU cooler with a height of 165mm, while most coolers are around 159mm).

I think this is a great option, but wanted to get everyone's opinion on it first.
