Temprature Max FX-8120...limits

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I have a question, when people say cpu temp max,,,for AMD I think its 60-65c..are they talking about the core temp or the aambient cpu temp..I use CPUID Hardware Monitor and i get two different temps...CPU and MB temps then I get CPU core temps, wich one if the right one and the most important one...one is def hotter than the other. I just want to know before ZI over heat my rig

The maximum safe operating temperature for 8120 is 61C Core temp. The other CPU you see is the socket temperature for the CPU which should be 61 as-well.. AFAIK.

Core 1-8 = 61c
CPU = Socket temp which can be fault because of trapped hot air behind the cpu etc should not be above 61 either, someone might want to correct me there.

I'm not familiar with that fan or air setup but what is your socket temperature when you idle?
Also make sure you don't over tighten your cpu cooler as that can hurt performance and increase temperature!

Then you should be fine as-long as you don't plan to have your CPU loading at 100% 24/7 (:

RTFM. Max Tctl ("core temp" is the Intel term) is 70 for all current AMD CPUs. That is because Tctl is scaled such that the max temp is always 70 and this is why they say that Tctl is a "non-physical" temperature "on an arbitrary scale", so it is most definitely not "degrees C".
