Phenom II X4 965 @ 4.0Ghz high temps - Page 3

post #21 of 24

There's a few things you can do to reduce temperatures.

 

  1. Buy an air conditioner for your room
  2. Tone down the overclock & reduce voltage
  3. Buy a premium air cooler, a cooler with 92mm fans isn't going to cut it.

You could also lap the CPU and cooler. That should drop your temps 2-3C.

Well my question are in the first post. Wanted to know whats better to do in order to reduce my room temps, do i buy an fx8350 ? or Kuhler 620 to lower temps ? But apparently getting a better cooler won't lower the room temps, so only option i have is to change cpu. Does fx8350 produce more heat than a phenom??

Changing coolers won't change your room temperature. Air or water you're still pulling the same amount of heat from the CPU and dumping it into the room. One pulls the heat away better, so lower CPU temps. A 955 and 8350 are both 125W TDP and put out comparable amount of heat, although highly OC'ed I would say 8350 puts out more heat.

You want lower room temps? Start undervolting CPU and GPU, or buy a lower TDP Intel CPU.

Yeah damnit, should have gone Intel since the beginning, but now that i spent 160 on an AM3+ mobo, dont think i'll be able to change anytime soon :/
