New CPU Cooler for my AMD FX 8150 Eight Core

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

So I'm having this problem where my CPU keeps overheating when playing videogames, I think the cooler is broken and I will need a new one. Problem is that I don't have much understanding of this subject.

This is some information of my computer:

CPU: AMD FX 8150 Eight Core

GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7700

Motherboard: Gigabyte ga-990fxa-ud5

RAM Memory: Corsair Vengeance 2x4gb (1600mhz?)

OS: Windows 7

Case: Cooler Master CM 690 III - Midtowermodel

I live in Holland

I want to buy a new cooler but I don't want to spend too much money on it, I just don't want to lose any performance of my computer.

Thanks in advance

Without spending a fortune....the Phanteks 12DX comes to mind, as does the Scythe Mugen 4. They both work well with the large heat footprint of the 8150. Other than that, I haven't personally used a mainstream priced cooler on an 8150 that I would recommend and is still available.

Edit: I forgot about the be quiet! Shadow Rock 2 - that also delivered solid performance on the 8150, and was extremely quiet.

Do you think the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO would do the job? I do want everything to run well so i'm willing to pay the price, but I prefer spending less ;p

Cooler Master CM 690 II will take up to 177mm tall coolers.

At the moment the best cooler for the money is the Thermalright TRUE Spirit 140 Power. It cost about £ 34.67 here, which is €42.18. That is a very good price for a cooler that is as good as and is quieter than NH-D14 SE2011costing £65.46 which is €79.69. That is €37.51 less money for better performance.. and if you change fan to TY-143 it gets even better. thumb.gif

Make sure your case is cooling properly. Second link in sig might be helpful.

Do you think my CPU could be the problem of the overheating instead of the fan? Long time ago, my fan was stuffed with dust, and I had this problem where it kept overheating. But my father had cleaned it with a pressure washer(with air ofcoure), but i'm not sure wether this was a really good idea.. It did fix the problem for a while but now it's has come back already. So do you think my CPU might be broken, resulting into overheating?
