I have FX 8320E (OC) and I have 70°C it's too high?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
When I stress testing my CPU and playing BF4 have near 70°C
It's safe?

Too high, especially for such a light load. FX-8320E has tCase Max (SBI-TSI / "socket temperature") of 70.5°C and maximum tCTL of 70 units. The CPU will start to throttle when tCTL hits 70, unless the motherboard increases this limit automatically (at least ASUS motherboards do). Regardless, it is running too hot.

What is max safe temp?

In normal use and at stock settings you should never see anything above <55°C.

The post in my Signature has a lot of information that could be potentially useful

like the Windows 7 hotfix patches found on the first post of the thread

thermal limit according to AMD overdrive is 72*, however you should never be near this unless you are testing the thermal capacity of your cooling solution.

getting above 55* for gaming is more than slightly worry some
