how do i get my cpu fan to cool better?

Update: i bought a zalman nps 9900 amx fan to replace the stock fan for my amd cpu. it works fine until i try to play any game then my cpu overheats and my computer shuts down. any way to solve this is appreciated!

Answers:

use brand new paste research the various kind.. clean surface of cpu apply new paste get stronger cpu fan off of newegg.com

Ask yourself this...did the unit run cooler with the stock cooler it came with???.....

As others say, proper thermal paste application to start with - a thin, fluid paste that spreads easily and only a pea-size blob the the middle of one surface. It's to fill the microscopic imperfections in the surfaces and should not form any actual "layer" that holds things apart.


Any heatsink/fan combination can only cool to some amount above the air temperature inside the case so overall airflow is extremely critical.

It should be front-to-back any any fan(s) set to give linear airflow through the case. Random position and direction fans do more harm than good.


Personally, I'd never use a heatsink/fan on a high performance machine. Sealed liquid coolers are cheap and with one of those set up so air is blowing out the case through it, you instantly eliminate most thermal problems.

Our standard builds for gaming and CAD machines have a corsair H80 or H100 in the top and a single case fan on the back, the one that comes with the case..

What type of thermal paste did you use?

Well its either one of the 3 issues.

-The CNPS isn't mounted correctly. I recommned remounting the cooler. You will need to clean up all the old Thermal Compound with 90% or higher rubbing alcohol, then reapply the TIM. The dot in the middle method of applying TIM is the most reliable method.

- The fan isnt spinning fast enough or it's not spinning at all. You should be able to adjust the RPM's in the BIOS.

-The inside of your case has poor airflow which causes the CPU to overheat. Top mounted power supplies seem to make matters worse here because the fan never spins fast enough and the power supply also puts out heat, then add in more heat that naturally rises to the top. The quick fix is to take off the case door and put a box fan directly in front of the open side of the case.

Unless you're overclocking that fan should cool your CPU fine under load.

Check to make sure it's installed correctly. The fan should be pointed so that air is being blown toward the nearest out-take fan (usually, toward the back of the computer). If it's pointed so it's blowing air toward the interior of the case you'll have over-heating problems.

Also, make sure there's enough thermal grease to coat the entire heat spreader (top) of the CPU. You might have to pick up some more if you remove the fan. You shouldn't try to re-use old thermal grease.

If that doesn't work, you can try some more unconvential methods of cooling, like running the computer with the side-panel off, or under-volting your CPU.

Make sure you leave enough room around the outside of the box.
