Amd Fx8350 Questions

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi all long time lurker first time poster.

I built my pc about a week ago and have the following:

Mobo: Gigabyte 990fx-ud3 model
Cpu: Fx8350 vishera black edition
Aftermarket cooler: CM 212 evo
PSU: Rosewill 750 semi modular bronze certified
Gpu: Gtx 660
Corsair 200r case

My questions...

1) is the 212 evo adequate to cool the cpu with No over clock just running the cpu at factory settings

2) at factory settings with this chip and cooler what temperatures should I be looking for? I idle at about 17 to 20 Celsius and reach 40 Celsius while gaming. I have to double check this don't quote me.... Yet!

3) the 212 evo only came with one fan. I'd like to put another on the other side to have a push pull configuration. How can I wire this other fan to the cpu fan socket?

Thanks for everything.

Hyper 212 is awesome for stock and overclocking depending on the voltage needed. U can just plug the 2nd fan into any fan header on the mobo.

Which exact power supply did u get?

1. yea it should be enough cooling, even with a mild overclock
2. your temps are good and what they should be with that sink, if you ever plan to OC, the "safe limit" for FX chips is 62c on core, and 70c on socket.
3. im not 100% what you mean, do you mean you want 2 fans running from one pin connection on the motherboard? you'd need some type of Y splitter, or a fan controller I think. if you have another 3/4pin on your motherboard that is open you can just plug it into that, just use the correct pins slots( it should go in one way because of the plastic guides)

or do you have the power connections and are you talking about mounting the fan? zipties works wonders thumb.gif

The stock CPU cooler fan is adequate enough with no overclock. If it wasn't, there would be a lot of failing 8350's out there. The Hyper 212 is more than adequate to keep your CPU cool.

I'd like the two heatsink fans to go in the same 3 pin connector. Also I have found the stock cooler was the equivalent of a jet plane taking off the runway... Not to easing to the ears when your dungeon crawling in d3 at midnight lol

do you not have any spare headers on your motherboard? you may be able to find some type of splitter online, a fan controller could be useful if you wanted to add more later on, or to be able to turn them down at night. thumb.gif

Well my Mobo has the cpu fan and then two other fan headers that's it. And I ran both of my other case fans to those headers on the Mobo that is why I wanted to have both cpu fans plug into the same header. Any suggestions on a fan Controller or ideas on being able to have more case fans. At the moment I only have two case fans plus the cpu fan

Welcome to OCN!

If you are worried about temps for any reason, you can undervolt your CPU. I'm not 100% sure on the 8350, but my 8320 with my gigabyte motherboard was reaching 1.42v stock. Quite high! At stock speeds and volt, it could reach 58c. After I set the voltage to a manual cap of 1.3v it maxed at 48c stock clocks. Perfectly stable, and I even made it to 4.1ghz before having to up the voltage.

With your CPU, I would imagine 1.35 would support the stock speeds. If not, try the rated stock voltage of 1.375v

Are you familiar with changing settings in the BIOS?

Also, I bought this NZXT fan controller. Cheap, great build quality, and long connectors that support 30watts I believe.

did you have turbo boost on?
it did the same on my 8320 because it has the boost up to 4.0, and it'll put volts up to 1.4v for it.
turned it off and my volts stayed at 1.3 for 3.5, and I was able to OC up to 4.1 with the stock 1.3 so the turbo was giving me extra heat for volts it didn't need, haha. tongue.gif
