Hi,

I was wondering about my cpu cooler. I bought this device in 2018. Every day I notice it gets a bit warmer.

Is there any replacement that would fit and work with the Tampa 2 motherboard?

 

Also, can I change the rgb lights on the case? And if I can, how the product would be called?

My recommendation is Big Shuriken 3, love this cooler and have it on several HP Pavilion and Omen Computers.

The stock cooler is inadequate. My i7-8700 was going over 95C and thermal throttling. I replaced it with an Arctic Freezer 33. Apparently there is a backplate already stuck to the back of the motherboard so any replacement cooler needs to have the same screws. Also, the maximum CPU cooler height is around 156mm.

You can remove that back plate easily, use plastic tools and take your time, it's stuck with some tape but it can be removed.
