AMD 955BE X4 Extreme Temps! (Resolved) - Page 2

post #11 of 42
Welcome to OCN, OP. After reading through the thread, I have realized something. You came here asking for help, and although people are trying to help, you are fighting their words. Here are the facts:

-AMD and heat are not best friends. Higher heat can (and will) cause your CPU to become unstable.
-62c is what AMD states as the maximum for their wonderful Phenoms, but 55c is really pushing the abilities of the chip.
-For overclocking, you WILL need an aftermarket cooler. There is no way around this, unless you want your CPU to become your new jewelry.
-Your fan should push air against your heatsink (pull it in from the case)
-AM3 stock heatsink fans max out at 3100-3300 rpm (perhaps people were overvolting to reach 5K)
-When overclocking, watching temps is CRITICAL, not pointless. You have read the wrong guides.
-You need an aftermarket cpu cooler
-You need an aftermarket cpu cooler
-You need an aftermarket cpu cooler

Thanks karmuhhhh!

I know that I am pushing back on your guys' answers, but that's just because I want to understand the "why" behind your statements. It seems that many of you are reaching conclusions without any evidence to back it up.

While I understand now from many of you 55c is as high as you should go, how is 55c pushing the chip??

As for an aftermarket HSF, they do break the warranty. I don't really care about that though. AMD also does support overclocking on stock. Right now I'm pretty much broke, so I may to have to stick with stock for a little while longer.

*edit* I had a lengthy post all made out but fark it! Light that puppy up to mid 60s, so in a bit down the road we can just trouble shoot your lockups, spontaneous reboots, blue screens, bog downs, random strange things in the OS section of the forums!

DiNet & Fletcherea. Really??

I am not denying answers. I am asking for explanations.

And Fletcherea, you deleted your helpful post and instead decided to flame?

I'm looking for a cooler now... recommendations? ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro is clearly the most popular option - 4 stars on Newegg though.

Hyper212 also looks good. How about Zalman? More expensive, but looks like AM3 compatible.

You can buy an OCZ Vendetta 2 or 212+ for 30 bucks. They'll do 3.6 easily and keep you in the mid 40's under load. As long as you don't need a ton of voltage, you can get a little more. If you want 4Ghz(or atleast try for it) You'll need something quite a bit more expensive.

Hey, i have the AM3 stock cooler, and it reaches on IntelBurnTest 6000 RPM, no overvolting, just disabling fan control. And, 55c is FINE if you don't overclock.
