Is this good?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I brought a HSF the other day and when I was fitting it noticed that I could attach another fan, so I attached my stock fan. Is this better for cooling or worse?

Oh, thats the Asaka Evo Heatsink you got

Good Choice - but If I were you I would get a better performing fan than the stock fan and make sure it is mounted so that it is pullling air towards the CPU not pushing it out

If you having trouble finding which way the fans are going just take a piece of paper and hold it against the fan and let go, if they are pulling in it should stay. If not it will push it away - Old School

the fan that came with the HS is puching air outwards, and my stock AMD fan is pulling air in towards the HS, dont know whether this is good or not.

The fan is at 2700rpm and the cpus temp is 36c

I would get two fans of the same speed on there, as I am sure that AMD fan is working harder then it should. But other then that its a good HS.

Well on that cooler you will want the a fan for Intake and a fan for exhaust to exhaust out the back of the case.
