good evening to all

 

please, i wish to have your kind advice for a better cooling solution for my pc

 

i have an intel g530 with the stock cooler but i think that my temp is a little bit high than normal (under full load 55-58 degrees celcius)

 

also, my asus p8h61 is getting really hot especially the northbridge chipset under long video rendering jobs

 

my case is an old cooler master elite series 330 with only an exhaust 80 mm fan

 

i am thinking for the deepcool theta 30 as cpu cooler which is nearly twice the size of the stock intel cooler and an 120 mm intake fan for the case

 

pc case cooler master series 330

intel g530

seagate barracuda 250 gb hd

2 x 2 dimm apacer ddr3  ram

samsung dvdrw

500 watts psu arctic power

 

may i have please your advice ?

Usually a stock Intel cooler does an adequate job as long as the thermal compound is still good and the fins haven't clogged up.  Before spending money on a new cooler I would try pulling the stock cooler, then cleaning it up and applying new thermal compound.  However, I would definitely install that 120mm intake fan.

good afternoon dear compnovo and i thank you for your kind reply

 

i have used all ready a good quality thermal paste (revoltec diamond) but i think my problem have to do with the case cooling so i will try to install an intake 120 mm fan

 

 

thanks again

Good idea, get a case fan that blows directly on the problem areas i.e. northbridge and cpu as you stated, also if the deepcool theta is twice the size then it should be a definite upgrade over the stock cooler

good afternoon dear diggi and i thank you for your kind reply

 

yes, it is good to buy a good and powerful 120 mm intake fan for my case

 

the deepcool theta 30 cpu cooler is really bigger than the stock cooler but it is not from copper, is just an aluminium budget cooler but i hope to have a better cooling because of it's larger size

Hi, based from the full load temperatures provided, it is within range of safe operation as the maximum temperature for the Intel Celeron G530 is 69.1 degrees celcius although adding that 120mm intake fan would help the airflow in the case and the northbridge.
