CPU Cooler Advice

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello

I am looking for a little bit of advice. I want to replace the stock cooler on my Intel C2D E6300 with something that will do a much better job of keeping it cool. Currently it is running at 40c but that is with the lid off the case if i put the lid on it jumps to about 59c...the problem i am finding is that since its in a HTPC Case (Mozart Media Labs) and there isn't alot of space (maybe half an inch) between the edge of the stock cooler and the power supply. I'm using it as a server (web/dns/mail/backup) so it runs 24/7

If someone could recommend a decent inexpensive after market cooler that is better then stock it would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Thanks

Actually bought this one to use but its too wide...because of where the PSU sits at the top of the case it doesn't fit on the CPU
