Happens ( Read about it on a hardware magazine / review website ) but I did not see it ever until recently. Fitted a deepcool gamaxx 200 on a pc powered by core i5 but the damn thing just came out of it's mounting ( 2 legs ). Now I don't know why but can't fit any intel type coolers on that motherboard - mounting holes and every other things looks perfect but still it won't fit. Only solution I presume is to use a cooler which can be bolted on the motherboard like cm hyper 103 / antec a40.

anyway, coming to the topic - sometimes when I tried un-mounting an amd cooler the damn thing also takes out the cpu with it - the bondng between amd cooler and cpu is that much ( used deepcool z5 ) as amd did not provide any bracket / locking mechanism for extra safety of the cpu. So I guessed op must have faced similar situation.

indeed you are right some times back the mechanic removed the Processor for pasting heat sink compound. I don't know whether he fitted rightly

Hi,

I need a fan, as the fan which came with the processor making too much noise which is unbearable. The fan changes speed automatically.

Thanks in advance
The fan changes speeds if the temp raises. Check temp settings in bios.

meanwhile i need a fan which is too noisy and working too long on the system feels like sitting beside Owen.

Used Cm hyper TX3 on 955BE before. As this is not available now you can go for better one ie Cooler Master Hyper H410R.

Upon calling they said they don't have in stock n not sure about when it'll be available.
The mobo you quoted doesn't have VGA/ HDMI output.
exactly. ..this is the problem of AMD BOARDS..they make us bound to buy graphics card.

tht is why i bought Asus board for amd with vga port..so tht i can get display at least.

ASUS M5A78LM PLUS..AM3 Socket
with vga port..studded with 955 be in my computer...around 4k.

you dont have much of a choice here as the availability of these older boards is rather limited-so you will have to make do with whatever you're getting in the market right now.

there's a pricier model of this board that features 4 slots,but seems to be out of stock at the moment at vedant and elsewhere-you could try asking around for it at your local shops and if you are lucky you may find it.

this board is also discontinued now...is there any other similar board with legacy/uefi option bios with DDR3 RAM socket and IGP?

If you are open to buy from aliexpress then you can have wider choice. For shipping method do select ali express standard shipping as option for faster delivery.

I had ordered cm hyper 212 and the antec a400 for phenom x4 955, mobo: M4A88TD-M/USB3.
Both are not fitting.
Amd provides the clip on feature of cpu cooler but i find that both the cpu coolers clips are shorter in size !!
