I bough in november i7 870 2.93 base and tturbo 3.6ghz, r9 380 4gb, 4x2gb 1333mhz and chieftec 400w psu, it ocverheats cuz i use Arctic Cooling Alpine 11 gt rev 2 and im thinking about buying Arctic Alpine 12 CO which is rated 100TDP. Now my pc MOST of the times turns off while im gaming to reduce heating i lock fps to 90 in csgo which works 82C max and in the moddle of game or while i stream movie to watch with friends pc goes black screen, 15secs passes and it restarts, and also moment it turns off it changes resolution to like 1920x1078 or 1920x954. I need help cuz i has all thing on my mind, HDD, CPU, GPU, RAM, PSU and dont have budget rn so ill probbably try to buy cooler and if it doesnt stop happening i will be pissed

Yeah, not a great CPU cooler, basically the same as a stock Intel cooler. Same with your intended replacement, just thicker (like the larger Intel coolers)

These are about the minimum you should consider if you are going to spend money on a cooler.

Replace your Chieftec PSU as well. Probably causing a lot of issues and really isn't a good idea with an R9-380.

If you are in the UK, there should be rough equivalents to these options.

not in a budget, could the Arctic Alpine 12 CO keep it under 75 at 100% load i watched a lot of youtube videos about it and its good thats why i picked it, im from Serbia so these coolers are more than 30e at my country now and for 18 i think Arctic 12 could do the job what do u think?

Not sure what to say, he didn't exactly explain any testing methodology. No conditions, fan speed settings, etc.

A stock i5-8600 running at a TDP of 65W, vs the i7-870 at 95W. Not going to get you the same results I fear. Just an older processor on a larger node, two if I am not mistaken. Not as efficient.

I'll grant that it is cheap, but it is almost exactly the same design as Intel's mid-range stock coolers (high end ones come with a copper core) And they stopped shipping those mostly, you have to order them specifically. Might only be the better fan and slightly thicker construction.

I would recommend spending a little more, but if not that will be somewhat of an improvement.
