My CPU cooler died

  • Until I can source a replacement I won't have a computer. It looks to be under warranty but I'll have to wait while I send it back.

  • I have a stock Intel cooler with your name on it ;)

    I have 2 Intel coolers if you need one (processors came with them but I bought an aftermarket one to use)

  • I appreciate it, guys, but I'll probably stop at best buy tonight and pick up a cheap one.

  • Evo 212 Pro is probably the best cheap cooler.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll see what they have

    I have a spare Corsair close loop i think its the H80...

  • At least it's just the CPU cooler and not your GPU like mine. :(

  • @MAV

    Mine is a corsair H100, it's under warranty since they do a five-year on all their hydro systems.

    For now I disabled the mrs' computer and stole the stock intel cooler. Hopefully freerunner will come out this weekend with a spare cooler so we can have them both up and running for the sunday event.

  • @Mr-Wonderful

    Did your GPU asplode?

    I use the corsair link program to keep an eye on my temps, and I have it set up to shut down if anything "goes critical".

    No, it just pooped out. My temps are never an issue.

    Temps arent an issue for me at all, the system runs so cool that the GPU fans never turn on unless I turn them on because the temperature stays low, but 3 case fans Im sure helps and the cpu cooler is a brand Ive never used but so far its been good. I never trust stock cpu coolers in general, Ive found they tend to be made cheaper than aftermarket coolers and fail faster. That being said I still have 2 Intel cpu coolers (CPU's are LGA1151 socket) if anyone ever needs one
