Hey i was wondering if any of you have any ideas of what CPU fan i should go with that wont impact my x4 low profile Ram slots.

The Mobo is: GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 2.x)

Its currently got the stock AMD cpu cooler - amd fx 4300

and over heats so easily.

My mate bough the Pc prebuilt they seem to think 32gb of ram will make up for how **** everything else is lol.

Without knowing the case recommending a cooler would be unwise due to limitations.

What case does he have Has he cleaned the stock cooler does the case have any fans?

Hi, its a Bitfenix Nova Midi Tower Case. Thanks IS there anything cheaper than that bequiet, i mean the Fan will be costing more than the cpu if i bought that lol.

the case only has 1 120mm fan at the back - which will explain why it heats up alot when not even running much other than chrome.

im assuming it may just be as effective putting x2 120mm fans at the front to pull the air through as the one at the back pushes the air out from the case. Let Me know.
