Registered 11 years agoIf you decide to install an aftermarket cooler, I can recommend for instance this Noctua one. Very silent and efficient albeit larger than the stock HSF combo. The definite drawback is that it requires a special backplate for a secure mounting - in the worst case you might need to remove the whole motherboard if the access is limited.
