You said in the previous thread that your temperatures were OK.

What's happened to change your mind?

because i don't really iknow. i was just going off something in a game thqt showed my 1660 was performing at 60-70 degrees at max loads. that seems like a good heat. but then again my computer will be producing more heat.... so i would think it might need a stronger fan or one with better cooling because of the overall case heat and the CPU heats..

thanks for reply

The one I recommended in your other thread was the best for air flow and noise level

Will, what they are saying, in the politest possible way, is that Noctua Fans are unlikely to work with your PC.
