Help with ITX build CPU

Ogammi

45 months ago

Hi guys!

I built an ITX system using the A10 7850k, using the stock cooler I'm getting thermal margin readings of 23+ while idle and only 8 under load. I've already tried reseatting the cooler and tried different amounts of thermal paste(used less once and little more) didn't make any difference.

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-rrvtps28pkr1 <- Would this cooler improve my situation a good bit? Or can anyone recommend a better cooler of the same type? It has to be this time or it won't fit in the case.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Are you using Overdrive to monitor your temps? Or something else?

Yup, seems to be the only one that people recommend for the Kaveri CPU's :/

Antec, ISK600, I can have a cooler of Max height of 170mm but the ram slot is very close so can't install a hyper 212 or anything similar :/
