post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Im looking at going from my old and warn out 740 x3 chip to a FX-8350 and im wondering if my old cooler will but up for cooling the newer chip. I have a corsair SP120 fan on it.

Anything is better then stock. Mugen 2 was a beast back in its time. You shouldn't have any worries on that. Make sure it's getting a nice, cool air flow. You could overclock some as well.

If it still has proper consistency it is fine.
TIM can settle out / separate over time... or dry out if cap is not on properly. If it hasn't it is still good.

So, i got this in and everything is running fine... till i start to overclock. had it cranked up to 4.5GHz with the voltage only bumped up one step and the temp hit 69c within a few minutes before i shut down prime. Now i have another one of these fans that i can use for a push pull setup but im worried about how it will effect my other fans and the VRM cooler on my motherboard. heres what my current setup looks like..

yah the 8350 is a 125w 32nm chip in the 1st place. so it's going to be putting out some heat when you OC it. which SP120 are you running? quiet? or the high performance edition? i would definitely consider high performance edition if you want to overclock that chip. it's going to be putting out some heat. push/pull will help some but your case airflow will need to be well designed. might want to give us an idea of what your airflow looks like for the case. are you able to relocate the roof 200mm fan to the side panel as intake w/o blocking the mugen? if you are able to, that should help temps alittle.

its actually a 220mm on the top... and there already is on on the side... the very top of the fan covers maybe to lowest heatpipe.




the pic is a bit out of date, but the setup is almost the same. (not at home atm) fan 6 is now in the fan 3 spot and the cables are alot cleaner. fan 2,5,7 are SP120 high performance PWM fans. fans 1 8 9 are coolermaster 220m fans, and 4 is a cooler master 140mm fan

Looks like lots of air coming in side and lower front which is good for GPU, but the heated exhaust from GPU is flowing up toward CPU thus most likely increasing the temp of CPU cooler intake.
You might find the case cooling link below interesting.

What fan do you have on the Mugen 2?
