i know, but he is not overclocking or volting. He is stock.

He didnt say hey, im stock but planning on Overclocking alot. He said im stock and not overclocking.

So i gave him the proper answer to his question along with related info.

i added stuff tho that post. anyway even if it is within the limit it would extend the life of the CPU if he got an aftermarket cooler heck even my old CPU cooler kept my X4 under 35C overclocked 3.9GHz 1.5V. and its only 15 dollars. to OP for 15 bucks you really cant go wrong with this cooler.

Eh, if this were a dangerous temp, could it have permanently harmed my CPU now? I was only running BC2 for like 30 minutes before I looked at my temps, screamed, and closed it. >_>

Definitely an aftermarket cooler. I trusted my stock 1090t cooler for a dual core only.

Will a rocketfish really suffice? Isn't that a cheap best buy brand or something? I mean, not that I'm saying the stock cooler is top-quality but at least it's designed by AMD >_>

Actually, it kinda does... they put those recommendations out so that datacentre manufacturers and the like can decide what level of cooling to install. If AMD say that 71C is the max safe temperature, it's the max safe temperature for all load levels, for all time. They can't sell a CPU that's not designed to be run at 100% within the rated temperature limits. It's a conservative estimate as well - further damage due to temperature can only be repeatable verified on old chips such as Northwoods - and laptop processors are routinely rated to higher amounts, despite being fundamentally identical. Yes, the temperatures might be slightly higher than recommended - but $50 worth of cooler is not in any way necessary unless he is overclocking or planning on it.

I remember some guy who spoke directly to some guy at AMD, and he said that even though they say the max temperatures are 62c (70c for 95w chips), it's usually safe up to 90c+ before any real damage can happen to the chip.

He's not overclocking, and he's got a 95w chip, which means he's good up until 70c (to be very safe).

If you want better temperatures, go for any aftermarket cooler. If it's not worth $30, then don't worry about it. Your temperatures are fine.

I actually get hotter temperatures in BC2 than stress testing, because the GPU also heats up the inside of the case. Temps during 6 hrs of Prime95 got up to a max of 48c, but I often see 50c after an hour or two of BC2.

It is "safe" at that temp, most def not recommended though. Like others said an aftermarket cooler and some better thermal paste and it should drop the temp's a very noticeable amount. Mine runs around 40(idle) 55-60 with any sort of load without the AC on. Ambient temps easily get to 90 without it and at which its no longer safe to have the cpu at load without the AC. ... I really should get a new cooler and stop using the stock one...

well my hyper 212+ runs my cpu at 37 max fully stressed on bc2.

However not sure how the temps compare from intel to amd, especially sandy to phenom.

I hit 55-60 is some games as well. But that is within range for my chip.
