Problem encountered: Hyper 212 Plus did not fit in the H230 case.
Looks good. How loud is that [stock] cooler?
The stock cooler for AMD is awful. If your case isn't sound dampened, it sounds like a dirt bike in the house (but not quite that loud).
ALSO: To the OP, you can try a low profile cooler. Cooler Master makes those, so does Scythe. If you want info, let me know and I'll link them :)
I can relate, I have the stock cooler on my 8320. It sounds like truck when I'm doing something CPU intensive.
It runs the CPU at decent temps. It is just loud. That is not awful.
That is why it is awful. Who wants that? I never said it didn't do the job. He also asked how loud it is, not how it functions. Should probably read water's post and then mine.
Whatever. It comes with the CPU and you don't have to use it.
Not trying to be mean, but I'm just saying, as far as sound goes it's bad. That's all this whole post was about. XD
Yeah, the stock cooler is quite loud.
Thanks for the info on the low profile coolers!
Any specific reason why the MB won't handle the 8320?
