post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Today i got my new fx 8350 cpu , atm im using the stock cooler . I have 41 degrees in idle but when i get in a game and it gets fully loaded , sometimes its passing 65 .. i want to know what is the maxim temperature i should let it go and also what cooler should i take ? not noctua please ... :< its awsome , but its ugly . i was thinking at be quiet dark rock pro 2 or v8 gts , i like the be quiet more but i dont know if it will fit in my zalman z11 plus case . what do you think about my temperatures? :s

those temps are totally normal and acceptable for the stock cooler. it's pretty easy to find a good heatsink. just look up the cpu cooler clearance of your case and then you can sort out. bequiet is a very good option. i personally like alpenföhn too. (both are german? xD)

Hi everyone.

I was searching all over the place for the official specifications regarding the max temps of the FX-8350 and couldn't find anything official. So I contacted AMD and here is the answer.

SPECS :

Tcase (aka core temps) = MAX 61.1°C
***This temp is correctly reported in AMD Overdrive***
***This temp is correctly reported in HWMonitor under AMD FX-8350 > Temperature > Package***

Tjunction (aka socket temp) = MAX 70°C
***This is what is reported in the BIOS according to AMD***
***This temp is correctly reported in HWMonitor under Temperatures > CPU***


See below for detailed conversation and picture.

QUESTION :


Hi, I would like to know what are the official temperature specifications of the FX-8350. I've looked at the product details and there is nothing indicated. I'm very satisfied with the performance of my FX-8350 but I would just like to monitor the temperatures properly with the official information. Thank you very much.

ANSWER :

The maximum temperature for the FX-8350 CPU is 61.1C at Tcase. This is different from Tjunction (which the BIOS and programs like HWMonitor will report), and can easily be referenced through AMD OverDrive, or closely referenced through programs like CoreTemp/RealTemp. HWMonitor and BIOS software will report the Tjunction temperature which can be as much as 10C different from the Tcase temperature.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reply to this e-mail directly and I will try to provide any additional information that you may require. Thank you for contacting AMD!

In order to update this service request, please respond, leaving the service request reference intact.

QUESTION :

1- Should I just disregard completely Tjunction temp and just focus on keeping Tcase temp within specs?
2- In the included pic I marked what I understand is Tcase, am I right?

Thank you for your time.

ANSWER :

Tjunction shouldn't be ignored specifically, as a Tjunction temperature that is in the 70s is definitely cause for concern, even if the CPU is only in the 40s, as that could indicate a hardware fault in the socket that could start damaging hardware. The 61.1C limit is for Tcase, but Tjunction is good to ensure that there isn't any damage to the NB controller, socket, or memory controller. It's just less important than Tcase for actual CPU temperatures, but is a good warning sign for issues with the board or northbridge.

The normal standard is 62C and my personal redline is 65C.

That case is shaped so it is hard to tell how big it is where the cpu cooler goes. If the case is 200mm wide there you are good to go.
