Hello

 

My CPU cooler has died and I was wondering if the CoolerMaster Hyper 212X CPU Cooler would be a suitable.

I do not overclock my CPU and am using the AMD FX-8150 Black Edition.

 

Is there anything better for around the same price?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Thanks in advance! :)

Those are good coolers. I use one on a 955BE that is also 125 watt cpu. It runs fairly cool, inn the case I have it never goes above 52c under full load. I also have the hyper 212 evo on an i7, runs cool, max of around 54c under full load: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099


If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

If you intend on staying stock consider an air cooler, several do very well on lighty clocked machine beauty is no added noise.  Look over the reviews they may surprise you.

Instead of purchasing a new cooler could i replace the current fans with another type of 120mm fan?

Because the cooler I have currently got is the V6GT. The only things that broke are the fans

Technically you could although the new replacement fans may not fit properly in the bracket Coolermaster uses, so it would be a risk your taking when purchasing new fans for it. Any chance your warranty is still valid, as Coolermaster may be able to send a replacement to you.

The warranty is not valid anymore.

The V6GT has a clip that goes over the top of the fans, so it might not be too difficult to find a fan that fits.

Have a look at the Noctua NH-F12 120mm fans as they are one of the best pressure optimised fans while maintaining silentness in the market although some are deterred by it's colour.

Thanks for the help, the measurements are the same so it should fit. :)

Are you saying both fans died at once!  That would have me doing a bit of detective work, very unlikely two would die together.

Both were slowly on their way out.

One of the fans made an unbearable clicking noise at almost every revolution, I'm assuming the bearings were stuffed, and the other one doesn't spin properly

Someone in the same room as me uses a Noctua CPU cooler and it runs pretty quiet.

Also, any tips on cleaning thermal paste?

Thanks for the help picking out fans! :)

Thanks for the suggestions! My fans came in today and they both fit under the clips. :D

Awesome to hear, how do you like the quietness of the Noctua fans and any temperature improvements for the CPU?
