Stable?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Heya! I just ran a Prime95 test on my AMD Phenom 955 x4 3.2GHz Black Edition processor. I ran a "blend" test, with 4 workers. After 10 mins it ended up on 71*C. It said that there were no errors, and no warnings. But i just wanted your word for it. You know, your word for it being stable. I havent overclocked it, i just have a stock cooler.

So is it stable or not?

(Idle temp: 36-40*C) (Temp. while playing high end games, like Shogun 2: 58-65 degrees).

the max temp for these chips is 62c, so if you are getting it that hot stop right now before you do damage to it. What cooler are you running?

Also if it is at the stock 3.2Ghz speed it should be stable and not need testing. Also that board is a 4+1 power phase with no vrm cooling i wouldn be oc'ing with it or it might catch on fire.

The stock cooler and bad air flow in your case. Get a better cooler and more case fans to get the temps down. Most people try to keep it under 55c as these chips dont like high temps.

If you are wanting to oc i would suggest get a better board as the one you have is not safe.

Im not seeking an overclock. All i want is some stable temps. 3.2GHz is just fine for me.

Well those temps are way to high for that chip. Alot of guys on here use the Cooler Master 212+ cooler and get good results.
