If it is compatible I'd recomend you to buy this particular cooler! I think it has the AMD brackets, but you should still do a bit of research for your particular CPU
Well, 35° is the exterior temperature. I do also have very thick walls, so maybe they isolate very well. Also, it's my very first build, so I don't really know the physics behind things. And I may or may not put a good amount of thermal paste in there. But it never gave me any problem until now so I haven't really bothered to substitute it.
Actually in the summer it's just a couple of degrees hotter. Built it back in August. I live in central Italy so there was about 30-35°C outside
Thanks! Yeah I really like the white on a PC. Also you can choose whatever RGB color lighting you want. I played GTA V, Ultra apart from the advanced settings and it stays between 55 and 70 fps. Euro Truck Simulator same thing, Cities Skylines does ~30-40fps (unfortunately the CPU isn't that great). Fallout 4 Ultra does a solid 60fps, maybe more, but since my screen tears a lot I have to keep V-sync on.
The mechanical drive is just an HDD that I've recovered from an external one. It's noisy and only 5400 rpm, but does its job. It's a 1.5TB Samsung drive.
Yeah, it sits usually between 20 and 23. Also keep in mind that I can't overclock and that I have 3 case fans, other than the CPU one. Still, pretty cool. Literally.
