Arctic freezer or a thermaltake xp-90 would be a good choice.

I fixed my computer! All i had to do was clean the fins of my heatsink and it runs like a charm! I guess your mom teachs you lessons, if you clean it, it will work better.

Field Value
CPU 45 °C (113 °F)


Thanks for all the help guys.

There must have been some amount of dust in your pc, remember to keep your PC on your desk and up off the floor to keep the worst of the dust out. And next time you are ordering computer stuff think about getting some dust filters for you intake fans.

Yeah, there was quite a bunch of dust on the top of the heatsink between the fan and the fins. I used some cotton swabs to brush it off, and then blew the rest out. I guess taking off the heatsink and really looking at it can do wonders to temperature, and i am going to be buying some dust filters, and then some compressed air so i can clean it about every month. Thanks again for the help, and next time anything happens, i am going to make sure its clean, technology at its best......
