Amd Athlon II x4 620 over heating.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, its been a year since i brought this cpu. I never seem to have any problem or can i say i never checked the temperature till now. I upgraded my graphic card from ati 4670 to nvidia gtx 460 1 gb Cyclone. I am using ausus N68-S motherboard. Cooler master extreme 600w PSU.
I played few of the games like deadspace 2, crysis, left4dead2 etc after installing my new GC and the game was smooth. The other day i tried to play black ops, and i had trouble playing due to lag. When i launch black ops and start the game thers no lag for 5 min, after that the game starts to lag. After checking my components, i came to know that , while i was playing black ops, my Cpu (AMD Athlon II x4 620) hits 71 degree and that's the max temperature this cpu can handle according to amd.
My idle Cpu temperature is around 51 with stock cooler. My room temperature is around 33 degree. i am using a local cabinet, which doesn't have good ventilation, so i opened the case and tried playing black ops, and i noticed 3 degree fall, and after opening the cabinet, my cpu reached the max temperature of 68 degree which is still high. I did not overclock this cpu, i had overcloked this cpu to 2.9 ghz, by only tweaking the clock speed and nothing else. From past few months, i am back to my stock settings, but still my cpu is burning for some reason.
Getting a new cooler will surely help me a lot, and i am thinking of buying a good cooler, but before that i need to know why my cpu is burning.

Your suggestions will be of great help to me.

Thank you.

Its because your using a stock cooler, plus since you upgraded your graphics card the heat from it is also going to your CPU.

Your CPU is burning up. The stock paste on the HSF is caked and worn, and the overclock isn't helping one bit. I just bought a coolermaster hyper 212 plus and I love it. Perfect for my needs.

Thats the reason why i opened my cabinet, but ther is not much difference. So what you mean to say is, its normal for my cpu to be 52 degree at idle and 71 on full load @ stock settings?

Not at stock no, but I guessing since your computer is inside a cabinet, all the warm air is just building up.

So how much cooler will my cpu run, if i get Hyper 212?

Should run allot cooler over stock cooler, however I would move the computer out of the cabinet to be honest.

A lot. My cooler gets me to <40 with a single fan on full load (it appears to stay under that temp in x4 mode too), and in push/pull i idle at 18c. Max <30
