Windows 10: Will this CPU be good for gaming/not overheating? Solved

    Will this CPU be good for gaming/not overheating?


    Right now I have an Intel Pentium E6300 on my Eureka3 motherboard, and that's not running BeamNG at all...
    If I upgraded to a Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 I am worried about it overheating constantly, because everyone has that problem. Would it not overheat badly if in a HP Pavilion p6387c case? I know this is not about Windows 10 but this is the only place that I get answers.

    Welcome to the forums. You will need to run a good cooler, not the stock one to keep it cool. Find the specs of your case and look at some coolers that will fit. Make sure your motherboard can run the CPU too.

    I recommend the Corsair H60 AIO cooler for that (and most other) CPU's as it is easy to install and keeps the CPU cool without too much airflow required...

    Hold on a bit...
    I cannot find case specs anywhere. I Googled "HP Pavilion p6300 series case specs" and it came up with product info, motherboard replacements, and Ebay listings. I clicked on the product info they had on HP's website, and that only told me how to change screen resolution and how much storage it has. I've pretty much hit a dead end here, and, uh... Yeah. That's it. I've hit a dead end here. If anyone would know just by some photos I took with my phone if this CPU would have some nice temperatures, that would be neat.

    And about these sideways pictures, well, that is just how badly Windows 10 and iOS 9.1 go together.

    If you cant find specs, just use a tape measure to see how much clearance you have. I recommend you give the case a good cleaning to. Dust build up will increase temps.

    Personally rather than looking at a CPU upgrade try a graphics card upgrade as that is always best for games, your integrated / on board graphics are the stumbling block. A good clean will help too

    I know. I plan to get a new 1TB Western Digital Black series (For reliability reasons only, this PC is 7 years old and I see the signs), a Corsair CX750 750 Watt PSU and a 256-bit 4GB graphics card (I don't know which one yet, but it's on a tight budget) as well as the CPU, obviously over time because I don't have the moolah to be buying all this at once. While I'm inside the PC installing all this stuff I can clean it up with a canned air alternative, maybe a strong fan or something. We only have 1 Earth!
