GPUs, especially on the nvidia side are getting a lot more efficient. I'm running a 600W seasonic with a GTX770 and a 4770K with no issues at all.

As to the original question, I likes me some air cooling. less to go wrong, and when it does go wrong, all you need is a fan.

I recently built an MATX rig for gaming and video editing.

GTX770 OC - 4GB. 16GB ram @ 1600, 4770K @ 4.0.

All 2 fans run at low speed.

What CPU cooler is that? And what kind of temps are you getting?
I need a new heatsink as I'm running crazy hot at stock everything.

thermal paste could also have not been applied properly or mabey has come unbonded from the heatsinc.

That one is a Noctua NH-U12S, and the other fella is right, removing your stock heatsink, cleaning it (get that dust out) and re-applying thermal paste may fix that right up.

Well, its the stock cooler(4770) and I've only had it for about a month. So it doesn't seem like either of those would be the problem. I guess I'll try using arctic silver.

When folding@home is running full speed, it hovers around 96C. If I render video CPU only, it will hit 100C and throttle. Not good. I've turned down F@H but the CPU is doing between 87-91C right now. Unless I do something, I'm going to have problems when summer comes around.

How's that CPU cooler working for you? I'm looking at low profile CPU HSFs and Noctua pops up a lot.

I'll tell you like most other people tell me. 99% of everything else is better than stock. And truthfully, if you're not OCing stock will be fine. On my old gaming computer I ran the stock heatsinc for 7 years with no issues.

Noctua is an excellent brand. They are very efficient coolers, but more importantly, they're quiet. Noctua is an Austrian brand and they are obsessed with the concept of silence.

Avacadoes make good sound dampeners btw, just smear one on the fan blades.
