low profile cooler for a4 5300

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am building a small system for a relative with a a4 5300. The issue is that the stock cooler on my a4 5300 is giving me 50C temperatures on idle so I decided that I would get a aftermarket cooler. I am using a fractal design core 1000 case so I need a reasonably priced low profile cooler. Whats the best one on the market?
Thanks.

First of all, nice looking case thumb.gif

I'm not sure how much clearance you're working with however, so initial recommendations are as follows:

I use this puppy on my A10 5800K and works really well for not being supported biggrin.gif

If you want something a bit better, I'd go with something like this:

For the NH-C14 140mm however, I don't see FM2 under the support list. May want to get a hold of noctua just to double check that. Let us know if you're looking for something a bit cheaper or these don't fit your requirements thumb.gif

Sorry can't upload a picture my Internet's down so I'm on data but I'm using an Asus a55-m lk mobo. Just to give you an idea of how much space I have.
