In need for a AM2 Bolt Down Cooler

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
heres the story. after about 4-6 weeks i booted my AM2 rig. BAM C3 error.
i read the documentations and found that it was an error with my CPU. then i though ****!!!! i have removed the IHS. after looking at the cooler i found that there was no thermal compound on it. it hadnt picked it up from the CPU Dye,

so i found the IHS put some themal compound (ALOT) then popped the IHS back on. (im using a stock cooler not the TUNIQ anymore)

im not going to be using this cooler for long as it give me 40 C IDLE (BIOS) at stock

please can anyone recommend a cheap and chearful BOLT DOWN cpu heat sink for me.

Sounds like user error to me dude... there's no way that could have happened if installed properly and temperature tested right after installation...

My top suggestions for <$45 coolers are the Xigmatek, Vendetta, Tuniq... of those, only the Tuniq is bolt through
