I have the Jetway NC85-E350-LF which comes with a tiny fan. For reasons unknown to me yet the CPU of this board runs very hot during simple operations. I've read that idle temperatures around 45C are normal for this CPU but mine seems to start at 45C and go up slowly but steadily until the BIOS decides that the CPU is to hot and enables the fan at full speed and stays there for a very long time. The temperature for this can be set in the BIOS and is now set at 65C. The noise that this tiny fan makes is terrible.
Since there is still some space available in the case around the spot where the CPU is located and there are holes on the side the case that are clearly for airflow out of the case, I'm looking for a replacement heatsink/fan that could fit this board. Which size/socket should I look for that fits the AMD E-350 Zacate, preferably with a fan on side?
I have this Chieftec Flier FI-02BC case, which is in upright position. As a result the fan mounting point that you can see in the "right side view" image in the gallery is on top of the case and practically next to the CPU. Preferably I'd mount a fan there that can cool the CPU and remove the CPU fan. If possible I'd also replace the heatsink.
