asrock fma85x itx aftermarket cooler... owner users please

Running a10 5700 in a isk300-150 . The stock cooler is overwhelmed. The back of the mono does not work for backplate coolers.
Anybody else with a similar setup?
Thanks

I mention this often but an a8/a10 in a small case is not a good idea. From my experience you are going to need a large aftermarket cooler which will necessitate a larger case.

Try to downclock CPU. CPU is less important in video playback, GPU is everything.

The case is behind my tv Vesa mounted.

Renethhx,
Is there a guide for under clocking?
Actually the temps are ok around 41 just the noise is bothering...

I don't think this is going to work well for you given the amount of heat and lack of airflow generated by the HTPC and HDTV in a cramped space.

Have you clicked the hyperlink in my my post? (There is nothing terribly difficult; just move the slide bar to the left a little bit. smile.gif)

Have you adjusted the fan speed in BIOS > H/W Monitor > CPU Fan Setting? (Select "Automatic mode" and set "Target CPU Temperature to, say, 60 and "Target Fan Speed" to, say, Level 3).

Sorry hyperlink did not show on my phone. Thanks.

The biggest problem I have is mounting an after market cooler. The back of the matherboard has chips where the backplate is supposed to go.

isn't 60c high?

Maximum operating temperature of A10-5700 is 71.3°C. So 60°C is pretty safe. (If the temperature reaches 71.3°C, CPU will throttle down automatically to avoid damage anyway.)
