Hey. This is my first ever PC as I've lived on Laptops. I run a 'buisness' of sorts which is very demanding on my processor, so I'm planning on browsing this thread to find the best cooler available.
AMD 1100T Phenom II X6 @ 3.5GHZ (Overclocked on air, stock Cooler, stable)
8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengenace @1600Mhz
Palit GTX 460 1GB GPU (Stock, yet to look into overclocking)
NZXT Vulcan Case
Gigabyte 880GMUD-2H Motherboard
1TB WD10EARS HDD
Coolermaster 650W PSU
At the moment I have the 120mm Front as intake, 2x 120mm roof as exhaust and a 92mm intake at the back (Scrapping it)
I'm looking for a 4.0-4.2ghz overclock or whatever's capable with what I plan to purchase.
I'm looking to spend no more than $100, am open to air and watercooling and I'm aware that the only watercooling I'll get for less than $100 is a H50/70 or some sort of Coolit or EVA strand.
Any tips as to what the best cooler possible is would be great.
I'm also looking to upgrade the fans to something a tad more powerful, so suggestions on that would be appreciated too.
Lastly, would a 200mm fan have a great impact on CPU temperatures? I don't play very demanding games so my GPU is always reasonably low.
With the setup listed above @ 3.5ghz stable, 100% CPU Usage I'm getting this on Speedfan;
Anyway, on to the rig;
Cable management is quite messy for the fans but this is because they're being upgraded very soon.
