FX 8150 AMD overheating an issue? - Page 6

post #51 of 53
Thread Starter 
Sorry make that the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED that I need the dimension diagrams for, the other CNPS9900 NT has a green LED, which wouldn't go to good with the case LED's. Also seems to be just around the same price after the rebate, then again I'm iffy on how well zalmans customer service is. They have been very slow with their emails.

Or are there any other Heat sinks anyone can recommend, max price probably around $40.

Cooler mater 212 evo is very good! See this

I noticed you were concerned over the "maintenance" on the water coolers. That only applies to custom made water loops. Corsair H-series and Antec are closed loop coolers require absolutely no maintenance EVER, emphasis on the ever. They also do not block RAM slots either, due to only using a small block on the cpu itself.

You already have multiple fan mounts surrounding your CPU, it is without a doubt what I would recommend. Using your top fan to intake and back fan to output, you'll have modest air flow around your VRMs and you'll be able to take your pick on which one to mount a 120 rad for the CPU. I have an H100 which is a 240mm radiator, and allows me to run my 8120 past 1.48v without going over 60C on the cores or the socket.

Another thing you'll want to consider is to see if you can zip tie a fan to the back side of the motherboard, blowing air onto the socket, that will reduced your socket temps dramatically.
