AMD FX - 8120 overheating

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i overclocked my fx-8120 to 4.0ghz

im using a coirsair h70 and i'd assume i'd be hitting decent temps but instead

im running at 40+ degrees on idle and when im playing games it goes to 71 degrees, then my cpu throttles and drops down in speed

do i need a better heatsink?

i set my vcore to 1.2875, but on cpu-z its showing 1.312V , i feel thats fairly low vcore

First of all what board are you using? Second, if you increase the voltage the temps will only rise not fall in allmost all cases.
