ARMA 3 has turned out to be very demanding. But as to coolers, look at the cooler Tom's Red Devil used. Here's a link and picture.
In your picture the CPU heatsink looks Lilliputian.
Hi guys, sorry to be a bother but I have seen the help you give to us more non-technical people and I am very hopeful you can give me a hand with this.
I have an AMD 8350 FX and it has never really got me the best performance, I play ArmA 3 and ArmA 2 most of the time which are two very intensive games, I have been freezing and lagging every now and again and sometimes the game will just be at 1 frame for about 5 seconds at a time. The fan is also very loud especially on power up. I am unsure if I have enough space for a CPU cooler, I checked for a fan spot but there is no ports on the motherboard for adding another fan. I do not know if it will help replacing one of the stock fans would help. Is there a way I can monitor my hardware usage while playing if possible? One friend said it may not all be due to the CPU and possibly my graphics card.
Here are my specs and a picture of my PC internally.
GeForce GTX 770
AMD 8350 FX
8GB of DDR3 RAM
Once again thanks for reading, I hope you can help me
