Hey, I'm currently in the search for a new CPU cooler as my Phenom II x4 955BE is dying in this strangely hot summer at stock clocks. I cleaned out the stock cooler the other day and it's much better, but it's just really fucking noisy instead. I'm having a hard time finding a decently priced cooler that will fit in my Antec 300, not generate too much noise (especially on idle) and still cool well. Anything that keeps it under 50C would be much better than it peaking 55C (55 is the supposed bottom threshold for temperature of these cores).
And while I'm here, I want to ask about RAM, I currently have 4GB of DDR3 at some mid-range speed (I really can't remember/ check it right now). I was wondering if it's worth just buying another 4GB of similar speed RAM, or just replacing the whole lot with 8GB of faster RAM. Though I don't really want to spend over £100 in total here, staying under it would be lovely.
So Facepunch, what can you say?
