Hi, computer noob here.
A buddy put together a computer for me with the following components:
VGA SAPPHIRE|11200-00-20G HD7850 RT
PSU RAIDMAX | HYBRID2 RX-630SS 630W
MB ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX AM3+ R
MEM 4Gx4|GSKILL F3-12800CL9Q-16GBRL
HDD 1T|ST ST1000DM003 7K 64M %
CASE ANTEC | P280 RTL
So under normal usage the computer is very quiet... but when I play video games the 7850 video card fires up like a jet engine, quite loud... computer is in n air-conditioned space, plenty of ventialtion around it, etc.
How can I make it quieter? Replacement fan kit? I've seen that the Accelero Xtreme PLUS II does work with the 7850, but reviews are all over the place (not a direct fit, horrible instructions, etc). Any other fan kits you'd recommend?
Or should I go liquid cooled?
Thanks for your help. Please note that I'm a real noob here, not familiar with all the lingo, model numbers for components, etc... assume that I have no clue and you'd be correct
