60 degrees @idle?? that is kinda high though... i worry when my thuban gets 55 going through prime...

well im not that of a bencher and i always advice my peeps to avoid using prime95 but to go for aida64 stress test... nevertheless... im looking for a nice and cool overclock, but if 4.6ghz is making such amount of heat, better go for 4.5 or 4.4...

im still waiting for it to arrive... i live in venezuela and i ordered it in colombia, it takes ten days to get to my hands...

well... another question: can my psu handle such load of power??

Does anyone know for sure about FX temperatures. For example. FX 8150 in spec says that max CPU temp is 62C. Is it fore cores, or for CPU ( according to many forums that is CPU socket temperature ). Becouse, im getting in P95 cores temp about 55C, and CPu temps about 67C in one of my overcloking session. I have FX 6100 witch has 70C marked as max temperature. So, am i on verge with 67C temperature for socket, or good to go for more clocks with cores on 55C. I asked same question AMD customer support and get this stupid answer witch didnt get me nothing useful. Here is the answer from AMD :
" I understand that you would like to know which temperature you should be monitoring; cpu, core or socket. The documentation states that the cpu temperature is 70'c. This temperature specification refers to the cpu itself and nothing more. The general temperature should be at about 60 to 70 degrees most of the time unless the cpu is under heavy load from large application deployment. I hope this was helpful in clearing up any confusion."

60c @ load not idle. I'm very happy at 4.4 right now. 4.4 is a great OC.

62c for the core and not the CPU. 55c is fine under 100% load.

Just got mine yesterday. updated my sig. runnin at 3.6Ghz with STOCK HS Turbo up to 3.9Ghz

Build:
FX-8120 OC'd to 3.56 Ghz STABLE with stock HS
ASRock 970 Extreme 3 (very easy mobo to OC with. can use your mouse in BIOS too if some didnt know)
8GB Corsair XMS3 (1333Mhz @ 6-6-6-15) 1.600v
SLI GTX 260's (700/1400/1000)

EDIT: Using HYPERSLI to enable SLI on mobo (runs in 16x/4x so yeah a little dissapointing)

Even though I know how disappointing these chips are after Phenom II, I'll most likely joining the club in the next few weeks. Plan on getting back into PC gaming with a budget setup and it's between an Intel i3 2xxx, Athlon II X4 631 and the FX-4100. I know the Intel setup would be the best option, but I don't plan on ever spending more then $200 on a GPU at this point.

I'll just overclock it to 4.5Ghz and see how it goes.

@TheBreezyBB really?? 60°C under load?? are you sure about that?? and just to be sure, what options do i have to disable to achieve the desired oc??

again... to be sure 4.6ghz @ 60°C under 100% load? and idle..???

U will be good to go. i3 2100 isnt much faster in 1080p gaming with avarage cards, and putting FX to 4.5ghz will put them in equal position.
post #4218 of 8112
what about 60C ? im using a stock HS so yeah it wont be hitting that next week. its LinX im using.

Idle temps are irrelevant. You really need to know the ambient temp and the temp of the CPU under load. When OC'ing you need to disable CnQ, Turbo etc

Turbo yes, but you dont need to disable Cool'n'quiet. Many people dont disable any of the power saving features. It makes no difference.
