Default Need new fan/cooler for AMD PHENOM II 1090T?

My 5 year old server has started to overheat and I'm pretty sure it's the fan. If I set the BIOS (Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H) for no intelligent CPU cooling, it should run flat out all the time, the maximum RPM I'm seeing is 3245.
Sound like the fan is the culprit?

During normal operation, it sits on around 45 but if i start up VMware and run a Windows 7 guest, it slowly climbs up to 60, probably higher as I have had the system shut itself down.

Seeing this is a 5 year old CPU, are after-market (or even stock) fans still available for these?
The budget doesn't run to a new CPU/motherboard unfortunately.

No. 1090T you say?

You should just sell it to me and buy a new CPU...

Seriously, though: it's an AM3 socket. Same as the current AMD's...so any cooler that's out for any of the modern AMD desktop CPUs will fit.

Thanks for the info, I wasn't sure if current AMD processors were the same for fan mounting.
I'd love to buy a new motherboard/CPU but funds are limited so make do.

*Technically*, it's AM3+ we're on now...

...but that's just to do with the electronics of the CPU, the mounting hardware's the same.

This is why I love AMD.

Before you go and buy a new heatsink/fan. Try replacing the thermal paste and giving the current heatsink a good clean. But it does sound like your running the stock cooler

I've got a 1055T (95wTDP) @ 4.1 ghz with a 212+ cooler and it never gets warm. 212x are around $55 purchased one last week for an i5 2400 system

The dark rock is a nice cooler but is massive overkill for the 1090T. Those dual stack coolers are designed for Ivy bridge and later heat monsters.

Be Quiet Pure Rock $10 cheaper than a hyper 212 and slightly outperforms it for thermals and acoustics.

Before you buy anything make sure you give your current cooler a decent clean out, it may simply be clogged with dust.

Thanks for the advice. I'll get stuck into it with a paint brush and the vacuum cleaner tomorrow. As soon as I can laya my hands on some thermal paste, I'll replace ti.

Tonight it seems to be running a bit cooler - although it's only 11 outside so that probably helps.I run VMware under Linux and starting up a Windows guest has seen the temperature climb by 10 or 15 in about 5 minutes. Tonight that hasn't happened.

As I mentioned in my last post, it seems to have cooled down a lot, no alarms for overtemp.
Running Sketchup under VMware last night (something that in the past has increased temperature) did not see the CPU rise over 50.
All I've done is to brush and vacuum out the cabinet and CPU fan.

That one seems pretty good for the price - even with $15 shipping. No chance a local computer shop would stock it.
