Is 55 degrees a safe temp?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
After running prime95 for an extensive period of time this seems to be where it maxes out on my stock cooler after having cleaned it up.

Yes I think 55-60 is the rated max temp for those CPUs so your good. It is a bit high for stock clocks/volts but nothing to worry about IMO. Prime95 will push your CPU harder then anything else will so mostly you will see 5-10c lower then Prime95 temps. Maybe improve case cooling could help and what is your ambient temps that make a big difference. I see you have a 300 what fans are you running and do you have some installed in the front as some don't come with front 120mm fans from the factory. Adding faster more higher flowing fans will help along with raising the speed on the CPU coolers fan. Does your GPU exhaust air into the case if so theirs a bit of added heat to raise CPU temps by a few Celsius right off the bat.

I currently have one exhaust on the back and one exhaust on the top around the CPU. No intake fans, maybe that could help? I believe my 570 is 100% external exhaust so that can't be contributing to it.

Temperature in the room is well...room temperature, like 75 degrees fahrenheit.

My wife has the same proc and with a Thermaltake spin q I thinks hers running 70-85% load only tops at about 42c and thats overclocked to 3.4ghz so yea with stock cooler sounds about right and I believe they are rated for 71c, if you want to use a stock cooler you should pick up one of the heat pipe versions for the Phenom II quads. Just checked AMD site and 71c is max temp

Is there any better CPU cooler I could get that doesn't require installation of a backplate?

Or do aftermarket ones always require a backplate >_>

Well like I suggested the Phenom cooler uses the same backing so the only thing to change would be the cooler and TIM it's self and that is rated for 125watt and your is rated at 95 watt, also you might be able to pick one up on OCN swap for real cheap or next to nothing

Oh, you mean the phenom ii x4s come with a better stock cooler than the athlon ii x4s?

The maximum recommended temperature by AMD for this chips are 62ºC.

As long as it is below 60ºC, I wouldn't really worry. However, if you're looking for a new cooler which doesn't require a different backplate but the AMD stock backplate, then I'd suggest the Cooler Master 212+!

I thought the hyper 212+ required its own backplate?
