Problem With New AMD FX CPU

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
As i said i have AMD FX 6300

PSU- Seasonic SI2II 620/Bronze
Motherboard-M5a97 R2.0
GPU-Nvidia 760
Case-Antec Gx 700
CPU cooler -CM Hyper EVO 212 (only with one fan in front towards the RAM slot)

My PC is about 2 months old,initially i used to get 19c -28c during idle and normal operation and get about 50c at heavy gaming. But now the temp has rose 25-40c at idle/normal operation and it reaches 60c during heavy gaming.Is it normal in a new CPU.I have only three fans which initially came with my case,i could add two to front of the case if could improve the scenario.

And one more thing i previously clocked it at 4580 MHz (229x20) CPU voltage at 1.48125v and CPU/NB voltage at 1.587v and now my current setting is 4200 MHz (200x20) and CPU voltage at 1.40 and CPU/NB voltage at Auto(i think it's 1.187).

So is my Temp okay or is it bad? Tell me whatever you know because i'm not good with hardware and i could use all the help i can get.

Do you have power savings disabled in bios?
My fx stock or overclocked at 4.5ghz idle temp is 21-24*

That shouldn't happen. Check to make sure that all your fans are working properly, and that they're not clogged by dust.

I can tell you that the EVO 212 is being pushed awfully hard to keep that chip cool, especially on just one fan and at 4.5 GHz and 1.48v. I'd put a second fan on it, and orient both fans to blow toward the back of the case, where the case fan can suck the air out. The 212's aren't recommended for the FX line of CPU's when heavily overclocked; they just don't move enough air.

And you don't need 1.587v on the CPU/NB. In fact, you're lucky you haven't fried it; that's crazy high. You don't need much more than 1.3, if that.

Actually i cleaned my fans today and got a 2c decline in temps.The first overclocked setting was not done by me manually instead i used the ASUS AI Suite II Auto tuning function and set it to to extreme mode.I don't have a dust filter in the top of my case so i usually clean it once a week.I will try adding one more fan to my CPU cooler and see what happens,thank you for the reply.

Does my motherboard support two CPU fans as i not seen a two ports for for powering those fans?

Well yes, just put the second fan on the chassis header and control the speed via Fan Xpert in AI Suite, which is tied to the socket temp just like the cpu fan is.

Another option is to just get PWM fan splitter on Amazon for about $4.

Okay,i added the fans CM Sickleflow 120 mm and temps dropped a little,the max i get is 54c on Prime95. Just now i noticed the heat-pipes on the top of the the heat-sink seems to be squeezed a little(three ends only) ,could it be caused due to heat?
post #7 of 20
That's just how it's made. Don't worry about it.

If you're running 4.58 GHz and Prime95 is only running your temps up to 54C, you're doing fine. I added a SickleFlow to my 212 and used it in dual configuration to keep my old Thuban 1035T cool for a long time. It was good enough even to run my 8350 up to about 4.4 or 4.5, but I switched to the enormous HE01 because I wanted to see how high I could go on just air. It can make it to 5 GHz at 1.55v, but under load, the heat is too much for even the HE01 and dual fans to pull off. Most of the time, I leave it at 4.5 on stock voltage, and temps are so low that the sensor is inaccurate.

The sickleflows work even better on a heat sink if you place a shroud in between the fan and the sink. To make a blank shroud, just take a junk 120mm fan and gut it. If doing push-pull, put another shroud on the pull side too and it will drastically reduce the air pressure noise. Another thing with the 212 is you should fill in the direct touch pipe gaps with extra thermal goop, it helps. And also, winter is over but you might not be running air conditioning yet, so ambient temperatures could be higher.

That mobo cant be good for 1.48v

Change mobo to a gigabyte 970 ud3p

Yeah, thats just the way theyre made. All 4 of the outer end pipe tips are pinched that way on my CM 212+. The 4 inner pipe tips arent.

What TIM did you use ? If you used the included CM purple tube, you could get 2C cooler by using AC MX-4.
