New System X2 4400+

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My cousin just treated himself to a new computer, and is having me build it.
Specs:
AMD 4400+ X2
ASUS A8N-E
Antec Neo 480
Corsair ValueRam 2 x 1 GB (DDR400)
ATI x1800xt pci-e 512mb

my problem is that with the stock heatsink at stock speeds, at full load is 51C, form what i've been reading that's a bit high, I just bought a tube of arctic silver, still gotta see waht that does. My only other idea is to have him buy a new heatsink, but right now he feels that he has spent enough $ on it for now. I can still convince him though. Just need some suggestions from the masters at overclock.net on how to properly cool this *****.

Thx
My System

Lapping the stock heatsink would help the temps a bit but 51C load isn't really that high. Under 55C load is safe for AMD.
Not bad at all...

Here, you can tell him someone else's temps who has an amd x2 4400+ and has applied AS5 and the Big Typhoon with stronger fan.

My load temps are about 38-39*C. And the highest I had before switching the fan was like 41. So that extra cfm brought my temps down about 3*C. I haven't overclocked much. I didn't feel like messing with voltages yet. Without messing with voltages, I moved it up to 2.42ghz, just a minor oc, but it only raised the temp 1-2*C.

AS5 and a good heatsink will definitely help him. Also, cable management.
