Which is the best cooler that will fit my setup, AMD 6100 OC

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Can I take the FX 6100 with a GA-78LMT-USB3 Mobo with a 880W PSU any further than 3.9GHz? If I can, what will fit here, the RAM is real close to the current stock cooler. Looking for small as possible, but with good cooling and a high RPM fan(s).

Hyper 212 would be fine or if you are feeling that ain't enough go for a NH D14 or a Phanteks.

You may want to tidy the cables up it will make your system run cooler and potentially allow for higher OC headroom. I don't know it the VRM on that board can take a high OC.

took measurements, wont fit, since i have a side fan. I should have mentioned I'm looking for a low profile one, like this:

Why low profile? They are the worst when it comes to trying to keep heated cooler exhaust air separated from cooler intake air.. Same goes for your GPU cooler but will reserve that for somewhere else. A cooler is only as good as the air temperature feeding it. Not the room temperature.. the temperature of air actually going into coolers. Your GPU makes more heat than your CPU.. and is dumping all that heated air inside of case.. same as downflow coolers do.. and this is probably raising the temperature of cooler air intake by 5c or more.. that translates to cpu and GPU being 5c or more hotter.

Could you give us your case specs. Like what fans you are using, their location and running speed.. How tall is your RAM above motherboard.. and distance from motherboard to side cover.

And if possible the air temp in front of cooler fans while stress testing.. both CPU & GPU.. and room temperature too.

I use a cheapy digital indoor/outdoor thermometer Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
cheap digital indoor/outdoor wired remote sensor thermometer with piece of stiff insulated wire twisted into the last 20cm of lead to remote sensor. A plastic clothespin and you can position sensor most anywhere to see what air temp is near components.

Thermalright True Spirit 120M is not expensive, is a bit shorter than a normal cooler with 120mm fan size, and has its heat pipes bent somewhat to make sure there will be room for most people regarding RAM. You'll see what I mean if you google for pictures.
