Ok, so it was requested that I posted this question here, so here it goes.
Basically my processor runs at 65-70C while games are up, and basically while idle too, I realize this is very bad, but I know the problem rests in my ''Heatsink'', It's not effective enough.
So basically I was thinking of buying a new cooling solution for it this monday, and I have some things in mind, firstly to start I will give a run down of my main parts, because I am worried about compatibility.
This is my motherboard: http://www.digit-life.com/articles3/mainbo...eforce7050.html
This is my processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103773 I don't know if it's a windsor or whatever, I just know It's an AMD Athlon 64 6000+ that fits into an ''AM2'' slot.
And this is the new cooling solution I was thinking of getting for it: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...&CatId=1588
So all in all, do you think that heatsink is overkill, or too big to fit on that type of motherboard? Or do you have any other heatsinks that you may suggest?
Thank you for your time! Anything helps out.
