    Default P55-UD3L + i5-750 too hot

    Case: Antec 9 hundred

    I did OCCT (3.1.0) burning tests with CPU set at 3Ghz (160x19)
    CPU:OCCT (auto1h) test was ok. CPU temp was around 75C during test
    CPU: Linpack (auto1h) the test is stopping after 3 min (CPU too hot) exceeds 80C.
    Easytune6 shows a temp with 10C lower compared with OCCT
    So when OCCT test stops (CPU too hot) in OCCT the temp is 80 and in easytune is 70C

    If I dont want to do overclocking over 3.2Ghz is stock CPU fan good enough ?
    for gaming and office (no encoding or other CPU burning applications)

    If is recommended to change the CPU fan Im a little afraid of not fitting on my motherboard which doesn't give too much space for the cpu fan. So if would be to recommend a CPU cooler for me what it would be:
    - need to fit on my motherboard
    - need to be quiet
    - around 50$ budget

    OCCT may be reading your core temps, not CPU Temp as Easytune does. Not sure as I do not use OCCT much myself.

    Any fan would be better than stock, and not sure but you may be able to do 3-3.2 with a stock cooler, depends on your ambient temps and airflow in your case.

    Not sure which of those would be best though, you would need to google around for some reviews. Maybe frostytech would have some results comparing those with all others as they usually do have TONS of heatsinks in comparison.


    They both should fit your board, but you do need to look at your case measurements to be sure your case is wide enough for them

    I have changed the CPU cooler with Artic Freezer 7 Pro
    Here is a comparison:

    Idle:
    Stock cooler: 35C
    Artic Freezer: 26C

    CPU at 100%:

    Stock cooler: 80C after 30 seconds
    Artic Freezer: 45-50C after 30min of test (The CPU cooler did not even needed to stay at max rpm)
