I bought my computer last January, hoping that I wouldn't need to invest any more money on it until 2-3 years later, but I guessed wrong. Here's my computer specs:
Intel P4 640 3.2 2MB cache
Gigabyte GA-8I945P-G motherboard
1024MB ddr2 Kingmax
Sapphire x1600xt 256MB ddr3
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS
Maxtor 200GB sata
LG gsa4163b dvd burner
Antec Sonata 2
running on Windows XP PRO
After spending numerous hours playing Battlefield 2, I am annoyed by the sound of my stock cpu fan. Not only that, I find the temperature of my cpu is quite high. When I'm idling, the cpu temperature ranges from 39-42 Celsius, but when gaming, it jumps to 50 Celsius. What's a good cpu fan that can help lower my cpu temp and help reduce the temperature?
I currently have 2 system fans, one sucking in air in the front, and one sucking out air in the back. My case is Antec sonata 2, so my space is quite limited in terms of a cpu fan replacement.
