To all you geeky computer nerds out there who build their own machines.
I need some help, the fan and heatsink that came with my AMD socket AM2 CPU (not overclocked) can't handle the warmer temperatures. I don't have AC and my room is 83 degrees right now. The room will remain around that temperature and probably higher as the weather warms up. Currently my fan is running at full speed, or at least 90%. I've tried taking the fan off and cleaning out the dust as best as I could, but its still not up for the task. I just got out of dusty college dorm living, but the apartment I'm in is still pretty dusty. I clean the floors and surfaces but I don't think the dust is going away anytime soon.
Anyways, I'm looking for a good quality fan that is quiet and can handle a dusty environment, or at least can be cleaned with some compressed air. I'd like to keep it under 30 bucks. I was thinking of getting a thermaltake, has anyone had good experiences with them?
