Thread Starter 
i have also read on here by 2 posts and a couple threads online that the bios runs the cpu 80-100% load can anyone confirm this for me?

It might on AMD's, but my Intel and ASrock idle at near 45. Good CPU monitoring software is HWMonitor, or I have a few friends that like Speccy.

I used to think that computers idle thier way through the post and boot processes, but I was wrong. There is a significant load placed on the cpu during the process.
My 2600k scared me when I looked at temps in bios before booting. Coming from AMD, it was concerning to see it running 55+ degrees during posting.
You may be able to adjust fanspeed in bios to cool it down a bit, just set the default speed to a higher value.

MSI's are my favorite board, but plopping an 8350 on that particular board is asking a lot from it, I wouldn't dare OC it.

EDIT: here is the thread I started about the 2600k, It was actually 62 C in bios eek.gif

"might on AMDs" So ... you're thinking it's normal? OF COURSE IT'S NOT

that's exactly what mines doing. 55c is the coolest it got. then it stayed at 60 for awhile. re started a couple times checking every thing then it started to creep past 60 about 1 degree every minute after 64 I shut it off. this was with out the side panels and stuff on and only one exhaust fan running.

Fx 8350 at Idol is 36c. Iam on the Formula-z mobo. U know whatr u can do is get a regular house fan if you dont have any xtra fans to mount in your case and direct the Air towards the cpu itself, its helped me knock off about 6-8 c~ Thats not alot and a temp solution until i get my custom loop done. That does sound a little high

I have to agree the 970 chipset is terrible for 8350s ( now we just wait for the random few from other manufacturers to enter the debate). And in the bios my 8350 is always warmer mid 40s to low 50s than when in windows where it idles 30C to a max 50C under full load (4.8ghz). HWiNFO is the best temp monitor for 8350s.

Edit and that stock cooler is loud, can hit 5500rpms.

(Hi OP)

40C is the ideal temp, and 70C is the max - which is pretty much in sync with most of the posts here...and I'm glad to see you're getting an aftermarket cooling system.

Imo, reading exact CPUs temps is a bit tricky. From pre-installed software to loose or faulty sensors there is usually a 2 to 5% margin of error in the reading. So, just make sure it doesn't go above 70-72C wink.gif
