[SOLVED] FX-8150 going over 65°C on stock clock OCCT test - Page 3

post #21 of 23
You could try making your rear exhaust into an intake...not the conventional setup, but I've done it with a few rigs as it gave better CPU area temps.

SOLVED! Sorry for the extremely late reply, but my PC was down for ages. Tried all sorts of things. Finally, went out and bought the H100. Installed. BANG. Idle temps down to 19 degrees. Load never goes above 42 degrees. =D

Also, one thing I learned through all this was to make the distinction between CPU temp and Core Temp. I know this must sound like a really noob thing to realize, but well, yeah. It was my CPU temp that was going really high (my core temps were also going very high though). I didn't realize that the CPU temp was calculated by a sensor on the motherboard, so it would be a little inaccurate because of all the excess heat from inside the case.

In the end, it turned out to be a lot of different things. LOTS of dust in the dust filter that had gathered in the three months I've been really using this PC, bad thermal paste application, and bad cooler for OC'ing.

THANKS guys! Is there a way to mark a thread as solved, or should I just change the title?
