New case? - Page 3

post #21 of 59
I was just reading in another thread that the Cooler Master eXtreme series is not very good, and you only have a 460W. Before anything else, I think most here would agree that you Really want to get a quality PSU in there, and then work up. What is your budget for upgrades?

Best budget psu imo.

To clean your heatsink use a can of compressed air.
post #27 of 59
Well, it doesn't look like that case has much airflow to begin with, and the poor cable management can't help. It does look like a stock heatsink also, but that should be fine so long as you aren't overclocking.

I would think that your first priority would be to get a better model of PSU, and then think about a case with better airflow and more opportunity to cable manage.

And yeah, your heatsink has the fan above your Motherboard that says AMD on it

The power supply that comes with that case is worse than the one you are using. This is the best budget power supply imo that is out there.
