Right now I have 3 fans (not including heatsink fan for cpu, and mobo fan), 2 which run at 28 dba, and a default case fan which runs at much louder sounds (but its cool, he has lights ). The system I have runs pretty cool, even though loud (i just got a fan controller, but the system still sounds way too loud [most likely the heatsink, only thing i can't turnd own]).
The system has been running smooth, but the cpu reads at 48c during web surfing times (well i just played 5 hours of World of Warcraft, but I stopped playing about an hour ago)!
And the computer sounds like a jet engine @.@.
So right now I am looking for a nice heatsink that will help keep the system way cooler and way more silent.
I'm running an AMD 3200+, it is using the stock fan/heat sink which is what i want to replace.
Please give me any recomendations, remembering that I am a poor college student.
