Super hot FX-8120

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello there!

So i have a 8120 CPU which i have overclocked to 4.6GHz/1.37Vcore.

The problem is that it gets pretty hot, over 70C when running occt.

The coler i have is a Noctua DH14, should that not be enough to cool my processor?

Maybe i mounted it wrong? To much cooling paste?

At that vcore and that clock speed it sounds about right. Are you using low noise fans on the D14? My Xigmatek Gaia and Xigmatek Aegir sinks with 120mm Deltas peg my chip at 62-63C with ~4.5ghz and ~1.34 vcore. Extended prime95 runs will peg the thermal throttling. They sound like banshees when they're doing that too.

That is about right. I had a 8150 @ 4.8ghz 1.488v with a NH-D14 and hitting like 60c core temps.

hello,
your cooler is fine, there very hot , disabling a module of core's will help with the temp, also have you improved your intake fans on your pc case?, I found mine are only 1000 rpm fans and do little to help.

im currently running an 8150 at 4.2 (1.26v) and i hit temps of 55-60 in prime, with a kuhler 920. i cant seem to get any higher without massive heat gains. you're running a higher voltage than me and your temps have increased

What are you using to load the cores up to get those temps? I'd be hitting 70C at those numbers.


Oh wait, nvm, these are 8150s not 8350s.

No freaking way the bulldozer runs cooler than Pildedriver though.

Hi, thanks for all the answers.

I have 2 high performance fans from corsair mounted on the heatsink running at full speed.

After about 10 minutes running occt i reach about 72-73C on the CPU.
