AMD X2 6400+ CPU fan heat issue help needed

By craigdexter1
Mar 16, 2008
  1. I have the AMD 64 X2 6400+ CPU and the fan I have is your basic aluminum finned block heatsink setup. The temp goes up to 66 c and the system shuts down as set in the bios.

    I am using a thermal paste.
    I know it's obvious that I need a better Fan/heatsink but what kind? Space is a premium. Any suggestions.

    The system is not overclocked.
    When you play a game is when it gets hot. I was on the net and all worked well.

    I don't have a specific suggestion for you, but there's a wealth of information here: http://frostytech.com/

    Lots of HSFs and reviews... very detailed. :)
