Hi I have just joined TPU and so if this finds its way to the wrong place, please accept my apologies. I have a VERY ordinary old "PC Gold" tower which is probably more cluttered than it should be (has an almost round hole in the side cover for a 120mm fan which was cut out with a jigsaw) E6300 runs 40-44 c idle and around 60-64 under load. seems a little hot to me, although the system appears to be totally stable e6300 @ 2.66 stock cooler GA-965p-ds3p 3870 sapphire 2 gig generic 800 ram 650W coolermaster Can anyone recommend a low profile or relatively small CPU cooler which will outperform the stock cooler? I suspect my 120mm side fan will object to the addition of a large cooler. also, a little off topic, if anyone in Perth Western Australia wants an AC accelero X2, contact me and you can have both it and the dysfunctional X1900gt it is attached to free of charge (so long as you will collect it). The card never worked properly, but the X2 fan spins up, so i assume it's ok.
