Bulldozer runs HOT

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
So I think we can agree that Bulldozer runs very hot. I have been browsing many different sites and reviews of the 8120 and they all complain about high socket temp and everyone is saying go by core temp.
My chip has a stock vid of 1.33vcore and it runs hotter than dog poop. I have an h100 and at 1.41vcore and 4.4ghz i hit 70c socket temp 60c cores and at 1.42-1.44vcore I hit 80c socket temp and 65c core.
I have remounted with noctua thermal paste 3 times and im positive its perfect. Even at stock with an h100 i hit 44c core temps, 50 c socket temps.
So my question is how are yall running bulldozer in regards to the temps limit OCing?
Do you think I should RMA the temp for excessive temps? I know some people have, but they received a different chip that ran just as hot.

Im thinking about popping in my 1035t and selling my 8120 and waiting for the next revision of bulldozer..... what do yall tink about that? I mean some of yall think that bulldozer is crap when compared to an x6 anyways.

EDIT: Im running push pull on the h100 full blast.

Yeah the heat is crazy. I'm thinking about selling my 8150, grabbing a 4100 using that money and clocking it to 5GHz until I can afford ivy + a good mobo. The extra threads on the 8150 just seem to be wasted in games anyway and add so much heat.

I havn't been keeping up with AMD chips recently since I moved to an i5 750 a while back. I can't remember what voltage I used but when I was testing my chip at 4ghz with my Be Quiet Advanced cooler I never went over 73 degrees. I would have thought that the bulldozer chips would run cooler than mine, especially with you using an H100.

Does it normally run that hot? I was considering buying one in the future. No way I can deal with those temps though.

Nooooo,
Bulldozer runs way hooter than the phenom 2 chips.

I mean on review sites they mention running 80c aslike its normal.
Amd claims 62c is the top temp but there is no way we can OC and keep this chip cool.

my 8150 only gets up to 35-38c under full load... my 955 never got above 45 under the same application

That's the First Instance i've ever heard of a liquid cooled system running off the heat as bad as you've just described.. with newly released chips and water loop cooling it just shouldn't be happening - but if the problems are that dire then i would suggest you switch over - if not to an X6 1100T or whatever, then perhaps consider getting a Sandy or an Ivy - it'll cost a boatload more, I know, but your almost guaranteed not to suffer the same heat related issues with an H100 like your getting with the dozer - and you'll get great performance..

I'm using an i5-2300 at max OC with a SD1283 (Gaia) cooler and i haven't seen my temps go over 45 deg C, despite rendering 10-20 minute videos, which, when i tried under stock cooling, saw my temps close to boiling water in less than 2 minutes of rendering

Thats crazy, the last AMD chip I had was the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ which I loved coupled with my X800xt Platinum Edition biggrin.gif Do you notice much difference between your 1035t and the 8120?

Im feeling the same buzz....
I have a bunch of different case fans like 6 of them so airflow isnt the issue, plus im in-taking fresh air not sucking in hot air from the case.
My 1035t at 1.48vcore never got above 45c socket temp with my same set up. I really dont understand.

Poolx is that stock settings and testing under prime 95?
