CPU Fans Socket 939

Hi folks,

Just wanted some opinions on some cpu fans for my socket 939 Athlon X2 5000 cpu. It's running pretty hot just at stand still about 135 deg. F. At 100 percent load can get to 189 deg. F. I need one that going to have some serious cooling any thoughts that could lead me in the right direction would be great..Thanks Seth

Hi Seth, first you should check the thermal paste on your current cooler, 138 is near the limit for that CPU. The stock cooler for it is fairly efficient so see if the fins are clogged with dead dust bunnies.
Here is the cooler I have on a PhenomII X4: Newegg.com - Enzotech Extreme-X Rev.A 120mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Hi Britton I'm using arctic silver but it probably needs to be redone, The cooler is clean and the fan is spinning around 2100 rpms but I'm pretty sure the paste is depleted so after I get some more arctic silver and redo the cpu I guess I go from there. Thanks for the reply and link I'll definitely keep that in mind if the paste doesn't do the trick..

You're welcome. Artic Silver usually won't "wear out" and attches the heat sink very well.
What tasks are you running when the temp goes up?

another thing to look at is your power supply voltage out put, they should be within 5% of rated volts. Use this: http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/hwmonitor/1.18-setup.exe

Ahh, OK, Prime95 will cook your CPU. It puts a big load on it. Are your temps OK otherwise?

When running all my normal start-up applications it's running at about 118 deg. F. but I had swapped out cpu's and I know I didn't get enough of the arctic silver because I ran out of it, so that job has to be redone so I ordered some more of it. This cpu before use to run at about 90 degrees when I had a good coat of thermal paste on it.

Ahhhaa. Use non oily fingernail polish remover or rubbing alcohol to clean the heatsink base and the CPU. Wash hans thouroughly afterwards, the paste can be poisonous.
Use a rice grain-size of the AS-5 in the center of the CPU, put the heatsink down and with a bit of pressure, twist it osme to spread it. Then clamp it down, don't take it off to see if it spread out. it does.
