My brothers CPU cooler has almost died and we hae to buy a new one.
Since I haven't shop for a CPU cooler I am a bit lost. It has to be CompUSA because he has a gift card.
He has a Soyo KT600 Dragon Ultra Plus V1 mobo
Can't you replace the fan ?
How much is gift card ?
How can a cooler die other than the fan going out? Or...it must use a special fan eh? Speaking of cooler's will someone recommend one for my board as well. I'm building my nephew a computer and will use this existing old Volcano for his computer (which is fine, it can't overclock) while replacing mine. I can't spend too much though.
**edit - actually, if you don't mind - instead of starting a new thread (or i wil if you want)
1. Hard drive - not so big he's just a kid (13 yrs)
4. I think I have all the rest

Lynch, for fans I like the Antec Smart Fans 10$, and have temp control. The led ones don't have the temp control, which will reduce the noise. HDD, any on sale. They are like 99$ for 160 GB now a days. 80 GB are like 60$.
Anyhow, I checked his PC. My brother is kind of crazy (or dumb, or both ) but I still love him like a brother
His CPU cooler is fine. I replaced it last Christmas with an Antec one. It actually keeps the CPU at a nice 35º normally. The problem seems to be the GPU cooler. He has a PNY Verto FX 5700 LE 128 MB.
I discovered the AGP aperture size was 64 MB, so that could have produced the card to "think more" MAYBE
I am still worried, because it can go up high as 60º (Celcious) unless the cover is out, and there is a personal fan blowing air to it.
The temperatures we get them using SpeedFan. Is there a way to check which sensor is which? it is kind of confusing
Thanks D -Using the right motherboard connections should control fan speed via speedfan eh?Originally Posted by Dehcbad25
These seem to be logical. Perhaps google for the motherboard+speedfan will take you to a page with same setup.The temperatures we get them using SpeedFan. Is there a way to check which sensor is which? it is kind of confusing
