First thing; Know exactly how much heat your CPU generates
This is what will determine the size of the CPU cooler you get. Once you know how much heat it currently generates, then you would know if you need a small, medium, or large CPU cooler.
But there is a quick hack to figure this out. If you still have the CPU box, it may tell you on there how many watts of heat it generates. Just go grab it and look on the box for it. If you don’t have your CPU box anymore, not to worry, there is another way.
All you need is to know the model number. The model number is a great way to know how a CPU generates which will then determine the size of the CPU cooler you get. The model number can also be found online. There are various websites that will tell you the name of your processor, its code name, the revision, and the socket type used on your motherboard.
Okay, let’s move on to the second thing
“Here is where you ask yourself what size CPU cooler do I need?”
Because CPU coolers come in all shapes and sizes and it’s safe to say that in general, the bigger the heatsink, the more efficient it is. If it is fitted with a fan, then the bigger the better. Large fans can rotate slowly while still moving a lot of air and being slower, they are usually much quieter.
Most people like to prioritize coolers that run efficiently and quietly.
Secondly, Choosing between a 3-pin fan or a 4-pin (PWM) fan?
This is very important because not all motherboards these days have a 4-pin CPU fan header on the motherboard.
This is so you can set the temperature/speed ratio of the CPU cooler in the BIOS or through supplied utility software that comes with most motherboards. It is quite possible to regulate the CPU cooler based on the amount of control you have over the fan speed may range from not much to quite a lot.
So there is a rule of thumb when it comes to the price of CPU coolers the more expensive the motherboard, the more control you have. With the best CPU cooler, you can have the fan speed typically anywhere between 40% and 100% of full speed. With some other boards, you will only get the option of slow, medium, or fast!
Many people still prefer 3-pin fans because of the amount of control they offer. If you have a 3-pin fan it means that the fan spins at a constant speed or (by using a fan controller) you can change the speed of the fan. They even work on a 4-pin fan header. Usually, you want to turn the fan speed down as far as possible while still ensuring the fan is spinning fast enough to ensure it doesn’t overheat, no matter what you are doing.
Thirdly – Consider the motherboard; Socket types, and layout
The very first thing you need to do is know about your motherboard is your socket type.
Currently, a lot of CPU coolers are compatible with most of the popular socket types although there is some only support one socket type.
Besides the socket type, the layout of the motherboard can also determine which CPU cooler will or won’t fit.
If you have a motherboard, which is relatively un-cluttered around the CPU area, you can probably fit just about any compatible CPU cooler on there without a problem.
However, many motherboards these days have a lot of heat pipes surrounding the CPU.
Fourth – Make Sure The CPU cooler fits
You may get to a point where you want a certain CPU cooler but looking at your motherboard, it might not be obvious if a cooler will fit and you would rather get one that it’s first time around so you are not messing around sending it back and getting another more likely cooler. So what do you do?
Well, if the area around the CPU is pretty cluttered with heat pipes then consider a cooler design that stands proud of the motherboard with a narrow base, ones such as these:
from left to right, Noctua NH-C12P, Zalman 9300-AT, Scythe Andy Samurai Master, ASUS Silent Knight II
Fifth – Ensure it fits into your computer CPU case
It would definitely not be put to have to send a CPU cooler back because it does not fit into the CPU case. Make sure to note the measurements listed on this website before purchasing yours.
Also, a good idea to take a few measurements inside the case and compare those to the measurements listed on the website before you place an order.
Why You Should Order only the best CPU coolers
Our CPU Cooler is of High Quality
●Has 6 Heat Pipes Dual Tower Cooling
●HAs a9cm RGB Fan LED Fan S
●Able to support 3 Fans
●Available with a 3PIN CPU Fan For AMD And For Intel
In case you do not know, CPU coolers are designed to dissipate heat produced by the processor that sits at the heart of your PC. The fans, radiators, and other elements in these cooling components allow for the accumulated heat energy to flow away from vital working parts without damaging the hardware.
If you want your PC operating at its maximum efficiency, then you have to invest in the best CPU coolers. This is because CPU Coolers not only keep your components from overheating, they also increase the lifetime of your other PC components by subduing them at a safe temperature while operational, preventing them from being strained by the heat that would significantly reduce their lifetimes.
The good news is that now that you know why it important and what you should consider when getting one, you can actually get the best CPU coolers, all within your budget.
