FX-4100 pushing 70 degrees C with CM hyper101a

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This is my first build. I wanted to overclock for gaming, but when i ran prime95 on stock settings, it hit 65 degrees within 5 minutes on blend. My board is an asrock 970 Extreme3. I have reseated the hyper 101 at least 4 times since i got it last week, applying new thermal paste every time, and still it cant keep cool. I dont know if I dont have enough case fans or what. Im sure i could use more, but i thought it would be enough for stock at least. I have two 80mm fans and one 120, and have read on the proper way to have circulation as well. I just dont know what to do at this point. If anyone could point me in a direction i would appreciate it.

The 101 is only rated to cool a maximum TDP of 95w. That's not a joke. Sorry to tell you that, but it states this on the page on Newegg. frown.gif


The Xigmatek Loki might fair better if you need a more potent cooling solution but keep the tower itself small. I was keeping a Phenom II x4 @ 3.8Ghz cool with it. It was keeping the CPU around 58*C so it was warm, but not overly so.

The 212 is the best option though for this sort of thing.


As for your PC, did you just get done building it? What are your specs for the PC itself?

Well my cpu is a 95watt cpu, i didnt think temps would be that high. I can game with it for hours at a time without temps hitting 60 C, but with prime95 it gets to 70 in under 10 minutes. i dont understandxD

Prime is pushing your CPU to unrealistically high temperatures, because of the excessive load it gives to the CPU. You might never hit that high temperatures in gaming, that's why I usually don't really trust those "utilities".

It doesn't run it harder than a properly coded game engine, it simply runs it at 100% without any fluctuation and that's something that's considered unrealistic. It also shows if the CPU is truly stable at the present settings. If it can run at 90% load and runs fine but crashes at 91%, then it's not stable. That's what Prime95 is there for. tongue.gif Not to test temperatures. But it IS nice to do a test every now and then to make sure that your CPU is adequately cooled at all times. smile.gif

Personally, I would look into getting a different CPU cooler. I highly recommend the Loki if you aren't looking to overclock at all. If you are looking to overclock, you'll want a bigger PSU (650w) and something like an H50 for cooling. FX CPUs get nice and warm really fast and tend to be power drainers... frown.gif
