I have a coolermaster vortex dream of which I can only say is nice & quiet. I have taken it off and applied some new thermal compund and then reset it but this has had no effect on the temp.
It seems to me that the cpu footprint is very small for the Athalon and so cooling is going to be tricky anyway. The big copper block only covers a fraction of the chip which is expossed slightly from the main AMD block. If it were in the same plane I am sure cooling would be a lot better.
Please can anyone come up with a recommendation? Is there a way I can increase the RPM of the fan as it just plugs into the fan socket of the motherboard currently and I can not see how to do this.
Many thanks to whoever solves this!
