Sempron 3400+ CPU Cooler Required

  Ben 216 19:59 27 Jun 2006

Hi, am building a system with an Asus K8V-X SE and Sempron 3400+. I have ordered the parts from eBuyer, and thought I should probably add a quieter CPU cooler while the order is open (will be closed some time tonight I think).

I've seen this at Ebuyer, but not convinced it will fit the motherboard, can anyone confirm?

I have £25 max to spend including shipping (so would rather buy from ebuyer) as I'm on someone else's budget!

Any suggestion appreciated, thanks in advance!

How did you get on?

Well, the Sempron 3400+ is a socket 754 device and this cooler is supposed to accept socket 754 CPUs, so presumably it worked OK?

I wasn't sure about the motherboard because my Zalman cooler on Socket A required 4 mounting holes in the motherboard.

I got an Akasa £14.99 cooler from maplins that clips straight onto the existing mounting.

Idles in a hot room in hot weather at 36C, played UT2004 for an hour in the same conditions and it went up to 56C.

In that case, it seems to be working OK. I wouldn't be worried with 56C continuous playing in a hot room. Just make sure you keep the fan/cooler dust free on a regular basis.
