amd 840t overclock cooling

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I need a cpu cooler for an 840t I plan to overclock to around 4ghz.
First time air cooling an overclocked processor.
Would something like this be enough? Or is it overkill? I'm on a tight budget.

My room gets kind of hot. Probably between 20-26C. The 840t gets up to 65C+ when using all 4 cores at 100%CPU time transcoding video with stock speed and cooling. I leave the side panel of the case open and point my room fan at it and it drops to around 58-60C.

For that money you could make better investments, like a 212+ which is cheaper
a scythe mugen 2, which is around the same price
or a venomous-x/ megahalems, which are a little more expensive, or cheaper if can find them used

How about this? it's in shadowclock's guide ranked as best
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608018&cm_re=nf-p12-_-35-608-018-_-Product

or this which is a lot cheaper and will probably fit better in my case, plus it comes with NT-H1 thermal which I hear is good.

You mentioned to be on a tight budget so I didn't even mentioned the D14 - there is also another that is jsut on pair with performance - the Silver Arrow.
Both are very quiet and cool really well.

The Cp12 could be an option, but I won't lie to you, I know nothing about low profile coolers and I advice you to ask somebody else or do your own research on them - only if you can't fit anything like the 212+ on your case.


When people say they are on a budget and need a good CPU cooler, the 212+ is always listed as an option, if not the best option:

then the mugen 2, for a larger budget...

i know it is OT, but did you tried to unlock the 2 "dormant" cores of your chip? It's a Zosma, Thuban-based...

if your 840t is anything like my 955 phenom II, you'll need more than a hyper 212+. Even in my cool basement, a 212+ wouldn't cut it. I use a CM V6 with dual high pressure fans. I need 1.4875 volts to maintain 4000mhz, and it barely stays under 50C in games, when the air conditioning is off, I'm sure it is close to 60C.

he's on a tight budget. the v6 is not the best bang for the buck, actually it's one of the worst, it's close to the price of a d14/silver arrow, and more expensive than a megahalems or a venomous-x. Your's must be very loud, and there are many, like me, that hate loud computers.

I know you really want rep+, but you could at least read the first post before posting
