Upgrade CPU Cooler

HP Recommended
Pavilion 450-a161nam
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Pavilion has a really small CPU fan and I have no way of checking the temperature in the BIOS of the CPU and GPU. The processor is AMD A6-6310 with AMD Radeon R4 graphics. I want to know is there a way to install a low profile CPU cooler (like the ones with copper pipes). The motherboard is a mini ITX I presume but there is not much space as the SATA connectors are directly under the heatsink. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Injeel


I can't find your PC using the model number you provided.


AMD A6-6310  is classified as a mobile platform processor.


You can check temps using the free program known as Speccy.


You can download this program at Piriform. There is an installer version or a portable version.
