Ok so I installed a new Asus v60 cpu cooler on my system today, and after I installed the cooler my internet and audio aren't working. And also barely any of my service can be started. Is there something I could've done wrong? The cooler seems to be installed fine.

Quite possibly. Did you 'knock or clunk' against anything during installation?


How did you install the cooler? ie remove the mobo from the case or attach the backplate through the cutout (if the case has one)

If removed from the case, what surface did you put the mobo on? ie Anything that could cause static etc

How tight did you attach the cooler?

From the symptoms, worst case scenario it sounds like you may have damaged/shorted the board.

Hopeful case scenario, the cooler isn't actually installed correctly and just needs to be re-seated and any aberrations are temporary with no permanent damage.



Does the BIOS have any temp monitoring? If so what are the temps like?

Hi, anyone knows wether a 120 MM CPU Cooler will phyiscally fit in a M92p Tower case? The cooler is 158 mm high in total. I think the Thinkcentre case is 175 MM wide. But You also have to consider that there is a Motherboard and CPU inbetween. WIll that fit or do I have to go for a smaller 92MM Cooler? Anyone tried this before?

Hello all, new to this forum. I bought a Cooler Master chipset cooler for my Asus P4P800-E Deluxe. I was checking my GPU fan when I touched the cooler and it was hot, I mean HOOOTTT, like cant touch it for more than a second hot.

The fan is spinning the 5K revs it runs in but its super hot anyway. I gave my stock cooler away and this is what I have. The MB temperature is normal, 37c and cpu 32c fanless at idle. I dont know where that MB sensor is located but the chipset must be over 40c at least.

Whats the best chipset cooler out there. My MB has an Intel 845 chipset. (i need an upgrade!)

My Antec P180 (provides great ventilation with 4 120mm fans) case is sitting standing up like its meant to be and I was reading in another forum that some heatpipes dont like to be sideways, could this be the case?
 

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

I upgraded my GPU recently and noticed that my CPU fan was making more noise than I remembered - sort of a droning noise.  I checked my CPU temps and discovered that, at idle, the CPU was hitting 38-42C.
I decided to upgrade my cooling.  The main limitation (besides the fact that Dell has a non-standard CPU backplate setup) is the somewhat narrow case on the XPS 8900 doesn't allow installation of most of the inexpensive high-performance coolers because they are too tall by 1/2" - 3/4".  Then I found the Cyrorig H7, which has three heat pipes, a huge heatsink, and 120mm fan all in a package that is "only" 145mm high - just short enough to fit in the case.  I installed it yesterday and it works GREAT.  Very happy with it, initially at least.
I also swapped out the stock Sunon case fan for a Cooler Master Blade Master 92mm fan, which is quieter but similar CFM specs.
Overall the computer is now quieter at 100% load than it was at idle before.  And my CPU temps have dropped by 15 degrees C.  Great upgrade.  I made a video on how I did it here:
...and here are a couple of pics:

I have the 212+ as well. You'd want one push and 1 pull. Also, make sure the 2nd fan moves the same amount of air as the 1st, or you'll create a bottleneck of sorts. But with 2 fans that have equal airflow, you will notice a drop in temps. But there will be more noise, unless you change both fans to a quiet fan like Noctua's. A Guy

Hey
I'm planning on over clocking my E8400 as I feel it is bottlenecking my system at the minute, I've had it for a while and I'm beginning to see it slowing. So for the time being I'm planning to over clock it to tie me over till I can afford a Sandy bridge model/MB/DDR3.
I'm looking for a 3.8GHZ - 4GHZ over clock really, however if I have poor chip 3.6 will do lol.
I need some advice on what cooler to buy, I've been having a look around and the 2 which stand out for value as well as OK performance is the Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus, and the Arctic cooler 7 pro rev 2. They are both fairly cheap which is what i wanted
Of course different sites say different things, I have read a lot of good things about both, but recently read a review from toms hardware and the Hyper 212 was apparently brilliant for its price and still good for enthusiasts while the AC 7pro lacked behind for bigger over clocks.
I wanted to know your opinions and gather your advice

From 44C to 32C and this is before the arctic silver has had a chance to cure. I am looking forward to seeing if the 300 hour curing time makes it drop even lower. And the Fan at full speed of 2400 rpm is absolutely silent. It is a big unit so mounting in some cases and on some boards might be difficult. But I am impressed so far.

Hi all,

I have my computer specs filled in for reference. What I would like to do is replace the stock Intel CPU cooler that came installed with my i5 2500K. I monitor my CPU temps with Core Temp running on the taskbar and lately I have been noticing that my CPU temps have been running hotter than they were just a few weeks ago. I clean the dust from my computer on a regular basis and at the moment, I don't see any problem there when I checked it. It might be that I need to redo the thermal paste on the CPU cooler, but thought that since I would need to remove the cooler to do that, I might as well bite the bullet and get a better after market cooler. I do not run games on this computer, nor do I have the CPU overclocked. So I guess what I would like is some recommendations on a new CPU cooler. My case is the Coolermaster Haf X full tower so I have plenty of space.

Thanks a lot, LittleJay

Hi all!

I am going to buy a new computer, and I basically have everything now. Except for my CPU cooler. I will be using it on a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T, on a Asus Crosshair IV Formula motherboard. I am not planning to be pushing extreme limits, around 4GHz I guess. My budget is about $60-$70 or 40-50 euros.

I heard that the Prolimatech Megahelm was really good with a Push-Pull confguration. So that would mean that I should get 2 seperate fans. Does anyone know some good ones? I'd prefer them to be under 10 dollars or 7 euros. I just found these two: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...rue&Keywords=(keywords)&Page=2#scrollFullInfo and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835200028. Both have really good reviews, but one has a sleeve bearing type and one a 2 ball bearing type. Is there a big difference? Are these good fans?
 

A:Need help on CPU cooler

If those are the options,go with the ball bearings. Stay away from the sleeve bearings, especially on the HS cooling your CPU. They have a decidedly shorter life span, and in some cases can 'go out' rather quickly.

hi everyone whats the general opinion of ram coolers? im thinking of them if they are worthwhile i have seen this one thats on offer Corsair CMXAF1 Dominator Memory Fan Cooler

A:Ram fan cooler

Hi,

I see that you are using DDR2 RAM, this could get hotter than DDR3 RAM because of the higher voltage used. If you want to overclock your RAM it is always better to use a RAM cooler to protect the RAM and may be helping in getting a higher overclock stable. Extra cooling is always better and a RAM cooler will cool the RAM and the surrounding components. They are not that expensive but can sometimes be a bit noisy because of the small fans and high RPM. I'm using the OCZ XTC cooler and it has a high/low switch and when set on low it is almost inaudible.

I plan on getting a new computer soon, and will buy the AMD 2500+ Processor. What I was wondering, is if i plan on overclocking it to 3200+, will the stock cooling be good enough, or should I get a different one. My case is going to have 6 case fans, and it's huge, so it will be well ventilated. I was thinking about this one, http://www.xpcgear.com/ttsilenta1889.html. Is that even better, and is it even necessary. Or if you have any other suggestions, please let me know. And water cooling isn't really an option, it's too spendy for me, plus I doubt it's necessary.

You will definitely need a new fan if you are planning on going up to a 3200+, and the fan you linked to seems very good to me, and it suprisingly shouldn't be particularly noisy either at only 21dB.

hi
i want to replace the stock cooler on my amd quad core cpu but every one i keep looking at means me taking the mother board out to put a plate under the board

i would like one where i take mine of and put another one straight on but keep the orignal clip design on the board any ideas

thank you

A:cpu cooler

If AM2 coolers are compatible with AM2+ socket (think they are), then look at Zalman 9500 or 9700 coolers (9700 would be better for a quad core Phenom). They just use the retention clip design without having to put a backing plate on.

I used the 9500 cooler on my Athlon x2 and it kept it nice and cool, and using the 9700 on my E8200 atm, and it's running great.

I have to say, the best thing about AM2 sockets is the very easy installation of coolers on it.

For the most part, my CPU run pretty cool, but with a couple of apps (Hulu Desktop is the only one that comes to mind, at the moment), it revs the CPU to nearly 100% when in full screen. If I just have a small window showing, it drops drastically, but when at the high end, the CPU temperature gets closer to the limit than I'm comfortable with.

This has me thinking about an aftermarket cooler, but I've never used anything except the AMD OEM cooler. I don't want to spend a lot, but haven't set a budget for it yet. Also, I noticed a used set of components on eBay a while back, that included a Cooler Master cooler than used an internal water system, along with a fan, that looked a little like an overgrown OEM cooler, except that it was designed so that the airflow went from front to back, rather than vertically. It seemed that this would work well with the overall airflow patterns of the case.

The bottomline is how much would I have to spend for a cooler that would make a significant difference in temperature. I really don't like the idea of water cooling, except as I described above. Along with a price, some specific recommendations would help.

A:CPU Cooler

Two inexpensive ones I have tried are the CoolerMaster TX-3 and Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7

I'm not sure if they're compatible with your setup, but they will both do a good job if you use some good thermal paste and apply it right.

Do a search on your favorite retailer's site and see if they are compatible with your system and good luck. It a good inexpensive upgrade.

I'm looking for a completely silent CPU cooler, and I have already checked some options from thermaltake and thermalright with huge fanless heatsinks. The problem is that those seem too large to fit inside the case, and the pictures taken only show them on a motherboard outside of any case.
1) Do you know of such a fanless heatsink that can fit onto the case, and maybe even extend outside of it?
2) Can such a fanless heatsink support a quad core CPU (With case fans of course, particularly 2 120mm fans)?

I'm looking to overclock my AMD 5000+ Black Edition and I was wondering what would be the best cooler for me to get? I can afford to spend about 25 and will probably be buying from www.microdirect.co.uk. Could anyone help me find a decent cooler? I just don't know much about coolers and am getting bogged down with all the info. I was looking at the OCZ Vanquisher which is on offer but I don't know if this will be much good for overclocking.

Any help would be appreciated because I just seem to be going round in circles

Hey lately i have currently been looking for a new cpu cooler considering that i still have the default stock cooler that came with the cpu and/or case...

Which isn't really doing its job too well not cooling and extremely loud (doesn't help that the computer is in the hottest room thats like a oven through out the day). I would like to aim for something between $30-60$ excluding postage costs (preferably something cheaper thats half decent).

I was wondering if you could recommend a good cpu cooler for me? I'll list all the main pieces of hardware in my case so you can have more information in as what i would be able to use.
what i have:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790XT-UD4P
PSU: 620W HX Corsair
Graphics Card: ATI Radeon HD4870 x1
CPU: AMD Phenom II x 4 955
Fans: 1 120mm bottom fan, 2x 120mm top exhaust, 1x120 rear exhaust
Case: CM 690

Thats the main components of my computer and also i live in Australia so i dont know if all the products that might be good for me will be available.

PS: To save you having to read about it the motherboard is AM3 socket.

well thanks for help in advance.

Hey guys I'm looking to replace the heat sink / fan on my Geforce 9600 GSO. At full load it is borderline 80 degrees C. I was looking at some coolers on Newegg and some of these ones make me wonder if it will work.

This one from zalman
http://www.zalman.com/ENG/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=276
on their site says it fits a 9800gt, gtx, 9500gt and such. But nothing for a 9600 GSO listed. I wonder if the bolt patterns are the same as the 9800s and 9500s since they are very similar in design. Any GPU Gurus out there that can give a little more insight. I tried emailing Zalman but that was a complete flop as expected.

Im going to be upgrading from my basic Saphire stock cooling which consists of a fan with some copper around it and a small copper film on top. My card runs at an average of 69C and this just wont do any longer. I was wondering what will give me the best results? I need the site to allow paypal echecks as I dont have credit cards and refuse to wait for money orders to arrive. Thanks to anyone who can help me
