|Tnx...straining the PSU..Yeah I was saying the new cpu COMBINED with the zalman..(larger fan?) maybe I should have worded it better..So does this mean I need a higher wattage PSU then???? :¬D No it's not the zalman fan as it's on it's lowest rev setting..besides I took the case panel off & llocated where the noisy fan was..ie..the PSU> |
couldn't be bothered with going into overclocking know-how..maybe years ago but not anymore...messing about with adjusting this that & the other in bios until getting stable results...hence easier option..anyway...done now.
The old 4200 cpu was 65w. I made sure I got the 65nm 85w 6000+ instead of the windsor core. Else I woulda gone for the 6400+ :¬\
20 watts difference...plus bigger fan...
Still non the wiser.....New psu with higher wattage on the cards?? tnx all the same..Andy.
(ps my airflow is ok too. )
I basically need to know if buying a higher wattage psu will result in quieter operation of the fan due to less straining?
