I just built a new computer and I noticed that my CPU turns real hot when my system is under load, it reaches about 80C. I am using the stock cooler.

I tried putting in 2 extra 80mm fans but it wont do anything good, so I ask, what cooler would you suggest? It needs to be pretty cheap (I only have around $100 - $200 left on my account...), work well, and make the CPU cooler.

Where are these temp readings coming from?

Stock fans are often maligned by some who live in the past, I find. If a user buys a retail kit/system and does northing abnormal...stock should be fine, IMO.

I think that I would look deeper into why the CPU temp is reflected so high before deciding on how to correct/overcome the seeming overheating.

Speedfan and Speccy.

I am usually playing games, and doing grid computing when not playing games, that is causing it I believe. I'm gonna do a lot of 3D rendering in the future too so it's a bit important that the PC can be on for a couple of days at full load without overheating or damaging the parts

Hi -
Just a very basic idea - Did you apply a decent thermal insulation grease under the main fan on the CPU -
This has been overlooked in some past issues and can be the easiest way to fix it - I was one who did not do this right when installing my new fan -

Thank You -
