    Noisy

    Hey
    My pc is excruciatingly loud and i'm trying to detirmine the source of it all. I've got it opened up right now and it seems to be my fan & heatsink (SocketA upto AMD XP3200 Fan/Heatsink by Cooler Master) so i'm assuming this is what it is

    I need help picking a new one, as googling it comes up with unspecific results anyone got a reccomendation? Price limit 15 quid

    Note that Mick beleives that my case isnt the best of choices for ventilation, so a mix of power and quietness would be best.

    Cheers in advance

    15 quid isnt much for a good heatsink :S might want to try and get a second hand one on the forums here if you post a wanted thread. Anything made by zalman,swiftech,thermalright will cope with a low cfm/low noise fan.

    It's always (since last november) been this noisy and never quite kept everything to an acceptable temperature (pc has been known to reboot itself during games due to overheating). I'm prepared to pay up to 25 if an extra tenner makes all the difference btw

    Think Ste has got it right.

    Thermaltake heatsinks seriously work well and can be very quiet

    you could always watercool though that would destroy your budget

    Just got a Thermaltake Volcano 12, excellent cooling, even on the lowest fan speed, although extremely noisy at maximum! Still, I normally keep it at about halfway, good combination of noise and pushing air.

    Have fun!
