[SOLVED] FX-8150 going over 65°C on stock clock OCCT test

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. So I recently had some issues with my PC freezing/BSOD'ding, etc. I found this to be for two reasons: one, my thermal paste had all dried up, and two my OCZ Agility 3 SSD was being a *****. After a few days, it died on me (second one/ never EVER buying OCZ again, got a Kingston HyperX 3K replacement).

So I replaced the SSD, and applied a new layer of thermal paste (after cleaning off the older layer). Now, the problem is this. My idle temps stay between 43°C and 46°C. This is inside a fully air-conditioned room (with the temperature set to about 20°C at all times). Now, I dedided to run OCCT a few times, just to see what it does on stock speeds. I wanted to know the highest temp it would go to.

On stock speeds, with absolutely NO tweaking of voltages, speeds, etc, it hits 65°C, and it would go higher I'm sure, but I set the cut-off at 65 in OCCT. I'm using the stock cooler. But, this isn't normal, right? I have NO overclocking at all. I thought it might be the thermal paste I applied (TG-2 Thermaltake), 'cause when I first got the chip, I was able to get it to 4.13GHz without going over 68°C. If I went above 4.2GHz though, then it would start burning up.

But now even at stock speeds, it's going really high. Any ideas on what I should do?

Step one would be to re-seat the cooler. Sometimes if you don't put it on just right you can run into temperature issues. After that then try re-applying thermal paste (maybe you put too much or too little). Try both of those and then report back.

I already did that, three times! Removed and re-applied the thermal. I used Isopropyl Alcohol and q-tips to rub it off. Then I put a tiny drop onto the center of the chip, and spread it using a credit-card edge. Then put it back on the socket, and placed the heatsink on top, locked it, making sure it doesn't move.

I dunno, I guess I'll do it one more time. frown.gif
This sucks. I was actually planning on getting a Corsair H100, but now I guess I'll need to figure out what the problem is - if it's a problem with the chip itself, getting a new cooler isn't going to be of any use, eh?

Maybe something is wrong with the cooler itself? Do you have a buddy with a cooler you could use for testing purposes?

Honestly i think those temps are completely normal. If it is a stock cooler you are using then those temps are not bad at all. An i5 3570k will go easily to 90s doing a test like that on a stock cooler. When i first got my 2600k i used the stock fan and playing games would see me into the 80s easily. Now with a Hyper 212 plus, I stay under 65c at 4.7GHz. And a h100 will perform much better than my cooler.

I've read that the 8150 shouldn't go above 65. Intel chips are known to be able to take a lot of heat. So this isn't surprising. But if I try to operate my AMD at 80+, that's crazy, it'll die in a few seconds. frown.gif
I'll re-test with the thermal paste, re-seat the heatsink, and test again, I'll post screenshots. If it doesn't work, then I dunno *** to do.

I'm actually the only person I know who has an AMD rig. Bleh, but I'll ask around anway. This blows.

To be honest I'll admit this here,
I proposed a few builds for a few friends before I got mine or went on forums much.. I always said that "Spending money on aftermarket cooling is stupid and a waste of money".
I'm now the guy that suggests it for almost everyone.. I've yet to build/upgrade a PC that doesn't have an aftermarket cooler. Usually Hypers or the like, one had a Macho and mine has a SB-E.

I'd suggest a Hyper T4 or whatever it's called, or a NH-D14, SB-E, Phanteks or a Custom loop. There's no point in a H100 when you can build a cheap custom loop for the same price or get a NH-D14 for almost half the price which is quieter and has the same performance.

OCCT is a overclock checking tool thing lol. These programs are intense and not something you'll get in real life. If you want to use a program like that get a better cooler, your using something out the box ( a cheap crappy cooler ) . Use a hyper 212 + see how the temps change on that program. Just play a game like BF3 and see how the temp come on that tongue.gif.


OCCT is something like prime95. Even though i use a cheap pre-watercooled system when running prime 95 on stock it can reach up to 57C

OP, can you take a picture of the inside of your case? how is airflow in there, and which cooler are you using?
