Is my FX8320 too hot?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Rig setup:
GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 - Motherboard
AMD FX-8320 @4.4GHz - CPU
760 GTX 2GB
G.SKILL Value Series 8GB RAM
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Silverstone 600W - PSU
500GB HDD



FX-8320 at 4.4GHZ on a GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 motherboard.

Idle temps are 35-36c and after running Prime95 for about 15minutes temps go up to 54-56c.


The only changes I made in the BIOS was set the multiplier up to x22 and change the CPU Vcore voltage to 1.4v.


Am I fine or should I lower the clock rates?

Hello,
Those temps seem normal for the overclock and the cooler . No need to worry!


Have a great day bud.

AMD CPUs are fine up to 62C so you should be good to go. Also, welcome to OCN

Thanks for the fast response, glad to know all is well with my CPU.

Same temps that I get, and I'm using the stock cooler

Do you think it may be my motherboard giving me the heat?


My stock bios settings had me at 27c idle and 45c under loads(tested with games not Prime95)

At 4.4GHz and 1.4v I'm at 35-37c(sometimes 38c) idle temps with 55-58c under load from Prime95.


Is testing Prime95 overnight a required test(6+ hours)? The PC is mainly meant for gaming/school and I don't have it run 24/7 but I occasionally leave it on overnight for 2-3 days max.

It could just be variation in the clocking potential for each processor, I don't think the motherboard could effect it. Prime 95 should show up problems relatively quickly, so unless you run really CPU-intensive programmes it should be fine without an overnight run

I actually just ran an overnight test, about 7-8 hours and didn't go above 58c smile.gif

Be VERY careful overclocking with that board. You're taking a risk using a 4+1 phase board, so I'd watch VRM temps. Your board is a good board for a 4+1, but it's still a 4+1 and is only supposed to support a 125w tdp.
Just something to keep an eye on, it's typically recommended to use an 8+2 phase board or better with CPUs like this if you're doing more than a little overclocking.
