I have AMD FX 8320 I going to order a new fan or cooling system to lower the noise. im not an expert so I need some tips and dimensions for fans and such. give me concrete links if u like xD

 

I'm not pro so im just buying parts so a friend can set it up for me

thanx on forehand!

I'd go with the Corsair H60. Besides being dead quiet, it is powerful enough if you decide to overclock later, and is small enough to fit in any size case.

That or even thr h555i ... either one in a push/pull setup wil  get you a decent overclock at stock voltage.

The H55 Quiet Edition is on sale right now at Newegg for $69.99 before $15 instant and $10 mail in rebate, not a bad deal.

I know, but I figure once he does and a few of us slam him -again- for preaching Armageddon, the OP will know not to listen to him.

No hate at all, just the facts which the H2O fanbois can't handle. Denial don't change reality it just shows some folks are technically challenged.

As independent test data shows the Corsair H60 is one of the WORST possible CPU coolers available cooling wise - in addition to the documented water leak liability. The facts don't lie but the technically clueless do. There are over a 100+ HSFs that out-perform the H60 and not a one of them leaks water. Many of them even cost significantly less such as a Hyper 212 EVO which is far superior to the H60 and cost ~2/3rds the price. This is all documented via objective scientific tests results so being a fanbois changes nothing.

Boo hoo for the technically challenged fanbois. It's their loss if they desire to remain technically illiterate. Attacking the messenger doesn't refute the facts, it just shows people's inability to deal with reality. Misleading forum members with technically ignorant H60 performance claims is a disservice that black_zion constantly perpetuates because he can't understand the test data results. He even posts test results for Intel CPUs because he doesn't understand that coolers perform differently on AMD and Intel CPUs based on the heat spreader sizes, which are different.

An educated consumer doesn't get duped by advertising hype and fanboism like the technically challenged do. Hating reality or the messenger is futile because reality don't change.



-------------------------

Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.

"in addition to the documented water leak liability"...  still waiting to see some of this documentation you keep talking about (I'm not say it doesn't exist, just waiting to see it).

Also I will again point out that your link is almost 3.5 years old

Also I will point out that yes the H60 is not all that good and is in fact old dated hardware.  I believe the H55QE was the one suggested above, not sure how it stacks up, so why are you talking about the H60?

Anyway, as always it's been fun to poke holes in your doomsday view of CLC's...  I'm willing to bet you believe we are in the "End Days" and that the Rapture is just around the corner...  LOL

Liquid vs air aside..

Here's a few tips.

1) some fans mount by using the existing holder/clamp. Others require removing the existing holder by accessing the motherboard backplate and unscrewing it then mounting the supplied holder. This can be a  pain in the butt your first time, but unfortunately the high performance coolers all (or mostly.. need more research) seem to require this change.

2) If you're buying an air cooler, these things can be W I D E and if you have fancy heat spreaders sticking up on your ram, there's a chance it ain't going to fit.

3) I don't know about the corsair series but my Antec cooler uses a USB connection to relay info to/from the control app. This could fail whereas a heatsink and fan will work reliably.

There was a time (short one..) where there some issues with leaks on the Corsair H series but that ended when the HXXi series came out.  I've done searches on Google about this "well documented" and "scientifically proven" theory about water coolers and all I could find with any degree of consistency (by that I mean groups of users with the same issue) pretty much ends in 2012.  Could not find too much beyond that.

Like all technology there are baby steps.  Liquid cooling has always been the prefered method of cooling by Overclockers (and still is) however unless you were an advanced user it was a pretty involved thing to put together plus expensive.  Enter the CLC's and now anyone can have a liquid cooler and the avg person can OC their CPU.  There is endless information out there on the advancements of CLC and considerably less issues on leakage.

*brought to you by Google and the internet....
