FX 8150 CPU COOLER! Help*

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
Hello,

This is my first time on this forum and it has been very helpful when searching for help

I have the FX 8150 stock standard with a thermaltake bigtyp revo cpu cooler.

My specs are as follows:

Motherboard - GA-990-FXA-UD3
CPU - FX 8150 3.6GHZ-4.2GHZ
GPU - GTX 560TI asus
PSU - 1050w
CASE - Thermaltake Overseer RX-I
Ram - 8Gb
HDD - 1TB 7200rpm

Problem - When running applications and games such as BF3 or 3DS max (rendering) My CPU temps rise up to 69-70c Celsius.

My idle temps are at 18c, The programs I have used to see the temps are Core temp, speed fan and Aida64.

They all very around 6-10 degrees within each other.

I was wondering if purchasing a Hyper 212 EVO with a pair of good fans would be any better than what I have currently in my setup?

Edit* I was going with the noctua nh-D14 but have been steered away as it can warp or even crack the motherboard from the weight it is.

Any help will be appreciated, Thanks smile.gif

Firstly welcome, secondly do not take much notice of the idle temp as this is not an accurate calculation. I do not know the cooler you are using personally but it does not seem right that you are reaching such high temps with no overclock and stock voltage. Are you sure it is seated correctly? paste applied correctly? Even the stock amd cooler is sufficient to cool a stock clocked cpu. The Hyper 212 Evo is a good aftermarket air cooler and will be able to handle a decent mild overclock of your chip.

Thank you for your quick responses.

I have not heard of AIO watercooling, but I dont really want to get into water cooling with the build I have now.


the voltage at the moment is at 1.4v jumping from 3.6ghz to 4.2ghz turbo mode.

The cpu cooler was an "upgrade" from the stock one that I had put on there for me.

AIO water cooling stands for all in one. Something like this,

How many fans do you have on your case? And what CFM? Fan config?
And the Hyper212+ will definitely outdo your current HSF, just make sure it fits in your case (Looks like the frio fits inside anyway)
Your current HSF has limited surface area along with 5 tiny heat pipes

Thank you very much for your reply's I tried asking this on toms hardware forums several times and never got a reply .

I will definitely get the hyper 212 EVO for my CPU then.

I have the Thermaltake overseer RX-I case that came with two big 200mm blue led fans ( I am unsure of the CFM on these fans) It also include a fan at the back.

I chucked in a fan from an old PC onto the bottom sucking air in.

Also what fans would be good to pair with the hyper 212 evo ?

Preferably blue LEDs

you will be disappointed if you get the evo. so many people moan about how they cant get decent overclocks with decent temps on the fx chips.

Whoever told you nh d14 can warp motherboards is lying. i used one for over a year and the motherboard was as straight as the day it went in.

if you want my advice go with the nh d14 you will not be disappointed.

evo sucks

There are "rumors" about big coolers warp / crack but they are not backed up with any fact. Only cases I know of this actually happening are when case was dropped, shopped without supporting the cooler on board or similar. All of which are not within reasonable use of equipment.

LOL NO IT IS NOT!!! No idea what planet you are from or what you've been eating but you must be living in some altered universe.

Air cooler = heatsink & fan/fans = 2 items in system.
*Heatsink absorbs heat and fan cools it with air.. SIMPLE!!
*Fan dies on a big cooler and system will still work at low to medium load because all of the big coolers with cool passively... or strap on whatever fan is handy until you get replacement fan. Coolers last virtually forever

Water cooler = block / block-pump + hoses + radiator + fan/fans = at least 4 items in system.. plus water.
*Block absorbs heat into water, a pump moves the water through hoses to a radiator, and fans blow air though radiator to remove heat from water.. COMPLICATED!!
*Fan dies and in most cases system overheats.. or strap on whatever fan is handy
*Pump dies and there is NO COOLING.. and water pumps will all die eventually. Even custom loop systems.. and these cheap CLC/AIO system pumps are not going to last more than 5 years.. many fail in a couple years.

Myself, I plan on using my heatpipe air coolers for many many years. I've used one for 4+ years already and it's still going strong.

Basic common sense can see 2 items is simpler than 4+ items

He was meaning all in one coolers. Like the h100i etc lol so which altered universe are you frm!! rolleyes.gif
You have confused yourself with custom loops biggrin.gif

i understand where you are coming from though. The H100's etc all you do is fix the rad on case and stick the heatsink on? how much more simple can one get lol
