Hot FX-8350 (in Prime95 only) - Page 3

post #21 of 34
Thread Starter 
I do plan on buying a nice aftermarket cooler... but the whole point is whether or not my CPU is running too hot.

If other people can run X settings on stock cooler at Y temp, I should be able to as well.

Trust me I don't disagree, and I appreciate the encouragement to buy a nice cooler, but I'd like to focus on my CPU and if it is running correctly.

Again.... No. I dont. YES I know I need a nice cooler to really help temps and high OC, but at stock or near stock levels, I want to know if my CPU is running too hot. So... does anyone else still use their stock 8350 cooler? and if so, what temps do you experience in different applications?

Others run their 8350s on stock air cooler, and as far as I know, they don't experience this issue.

There are plenty of people having heat problems with the stock HSF on the FX-8xxx series. I've read plenty of them. Do we know where they live and what season it was? I'm sure a guy living in Idaho in winter isn't going to have overheating problems on stock.

AMD's 8-core chips are notorious for being "space heaters". If you don't get one, fine, but don't think that is the norm.

You bring up a very good point...

it's winter here, and been quite cold every day since I built the system. When I take this into consideration, it really scares me what my temps will be in the summer.

I will try my Zalman 120mm that I currently have on my old Phenom II x4 955. If that thing won't allow my FX to run Prime95, I will most likely RMA it.

Thanks again though, everyone. More insight and suggestions are still appreciated. Especially your personal voltage (and all the other power stuff in Asus BIOS) settings, and whether or not you can run Prime95...

If you're too lazy to click on the link...

"I just ran Prime95 and I was getting around 59*C , I am using the stock cooler."

What I'm worried about is why I can't do this? Mine almost instantly hits 60C, and slowly climbs to 67+ before I get scared and stop tests.

Please don't tell me that running a standard CPU stability/thermal test is "just stupid" on the stock (i.e. made for it) cooler.

This really helped me. Here's the link http://www.overclock.net/t/1358045/fx-8320-stability-tetsting#post_19240997

Remember you wont go far with stock cooling, I got a 300 MHz OC on my 8320 with stock cooling at 62* C
