Hi, I've got a Phenom II (quad core) processor in a small form factor case (silverstone).  I wanted something a bit more silent, unfortunately I picked a Gelid Siberian and it didn't preform well.  Temperature rose almost 10degrees @ idle.  (up from 50 to 60 degrees).

I'm going to pull that out.  Can anyone recommend a silent compact cooler that is a bit of an upgrade?  I don't overclock.

Oh, what's a safe temperature range to run this CPU at? 

 

Thanks,
Joe

The cooler master GeminII would probaly fit in your case a bit better. its not as good as the h60 but it will do the trick

I think I used too much thermal paste when mounting my new gelid siberian.

 

I guess I'll try again.
