I currently have an i7-3770K and am looking to buy a CPU cooler. It has the stock Intel one currently (although I'm not quite sure why my dad put a stock cooler on an overclockable CPU)... Anyway, it turns out in CPU-intense games I wasn't getting as much performance as I should have been getting. I got HWMonitor aaaand...as it turns out, I'm thermal throttling at 60% usage on one core hovering between 100-110 degrees C.
I need a CPU cooler (and probably a new case).
Recommendations that will work with my motherboard? I have an ASRock Z77 Extreme4.
(I'm kind of surprised my PC hasn't caught on fire yet).
