AMD chips idle at a much lower temp

You also might not have as much tension on the cpu as is possible. Oh and consider your ambient temperature...if its pretty high then of course you are going to have higher idle then someone in a colder region.

Might help, but 51c on Prime is not bad. Which leads me to believe TIM is functioning properly. I would be very surprised if re-seating with AS5 improved more than 2c.. and possible no improvement at all.
I could be wrong. Wouldn't be the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last.

That is a good point...that his 100% load temps are fine.

Running 40c idle does not leave much room for temperature increase under load. biggrin.gif

You can safely overclock up to 60c no problem.


Just a little confused at this lol.
Keep temps below 60c and the maximum temp for this CPU is 60-62c....but I can overclock up to 60c no problem? I'm likely just misunderstanding due to lack of experience but could you clarify please?

Just keep an eye on the temp.

Keep it below 60C. Above 60C can speed up the degradation process of the CPU.

Up to 60C is fine, above is too much.

I tried keeping mine at 45-50

Is idle temp with 100% fan?

Cuz IF I do that I get 36 tongue.gif

And my PC sounds lik its running prime. So give me 40 silent degrees instead of 36loud ones

Exactly.
I wouldn't want to see long runs above 55c.

Cool that sounds good. Maybe I'll try doing the paste again and I'll just keep an eye on the temps. Unless their is anything else about the config of the heat sink I think that answers my questions! Alright time to go read stuff and figure out how to overclock!!

Thanks for all the help and quick replies!

Jirne yes that is with fan at 100%. Eh the noise doesn't seem to loud to me.

Good luck with the OC my first 4.0 OC went fine, you're turn

So far got to 3.4 with using multiplier, but temps already at 56-58c :\ lol
