i've just bought a phase changer for my CPU


Recommended Posts

well i sort of got fed up of my AMD phenom iix2 CPU reaching dangerous temps so i decided to buy a Phase changer, if you dont know what one is, google it.

have i just done something i'll regret? considering i dont overclock *cough*damage*cough* my CPU. just want my fan to shut up.

also consider the fact i've just blown over £500 to buy one.

so waddya think?

incase you're still wondering what i'm babbling on about, i've basically just bought a fridge for my computer.

Sounds like overkill to me. You could buy a half dozen spare CPUs for that much...According to the specs on the AMD web site, the max operating temperature for the Phenom II x2 is 70, so you're fine if it's maxing out at 62.

well in general it's $3 or the £ equivilent, but AMD sent me a new fan for free, that was quite noisy but it's thermal paste stuck to the old batch. meaning when i put my old fan back in, the results where amazingly quieter, and better. i'll remeber to buy thermal paste next time though. save AMD and myself time.
