The problem with coolers like your Gamma Archer is they move air down through cooler where it turns out hitting GPU, RAM I/O housings, etc. and turn up alongside of cooler and as it goes by fan is drawn back in.

Also, heatpipe coolers almost always out-perform solid heatsinks like the Archer .. simply because they move the heat from CPU farther away to larger area of fins and generally have better airflow.

"Ways to Better Cooling" link in my sig has lots of info about cooling and airflow.

I will definitely check the link out. I guess I'll wait a bit, probably get the TX3 EVO instead of re-applying thermal paste. Saves the time, money & effort. biggrin.gif

Thanks a lot!

TX3 Evo is more money than GammaXX 300
TX3 Evo Rs. 1,799 was
GammaXX 300 Rs. 1,625

GammaXX 400 Rs. 2,225

TX3 is not as good as GammaXX 300


The poorest the GammaXX 300 results are as good as TX3 and still Rs. 274 lower priced.

Alright then, I'll get the Deepcool cooler if I'm getting a new one. Do you think the motherboard could be at fault or something? Cause the readings of the cpu fan rpm are damn weird

Try cleaning and re-seating your cooler. Only use a small amount of TIM .. like about the size of a grain of rice or maybe slightly bigger. The TIM print only needs to spread into a circle about the size of CPU, but does not need to be in the corners.
Here is a link to amount to use and how it should look

The RPM reading looks to be a problem with signal from fan. Is there only one fan on the motherboard header?

If there are two fans on a splitter I will guess that both are sending signals to motherboard. That confuses the motherboard because the fan headers are only designed for one signal.

Yes, I'm pretty sure its the Gamma Archer that's at fault for giving such readings. Too bad I realized that I could RMA it, only to see I'm past the 10-day return policy only by one day.. XD. Now I've back on the stock cooler, for now. And yes, there is only one cpu fan header on the motherboard.

I would contact the seller and nicely beg to be allowed to return the Archer in exchange for the GammaXX. They may be nice and let you do it.
