That's a bit weird i'm using the stock cooler @ 4014Mhz / 1.125 and i hardly reach 45 + when i'm using boinc over night or 58 ~ when i ran Prime95.
I have the corsair R500 case series maybe it's making that much of a difference? (I'm using Noctuas Thermal Grease)
My room is like 19-20 / (Warmer days) 24 C

I see nothing wrong with your temps the scoket temp will be 13 to 15 degres higher pay more attion to the core temp your at 29c idle up to 45c under load core temp you want to keep bellow 60c your socket temps are good MOFFET temps good as well as south bridge

65c for a core temp will fry it you have 2 diffrent temps for a cpu. The cpu temp and core

Maximum operating temperature for 8120 = 61°C

CPU temp is the package temp, core temp is the temp of the individual cores.

Hope that makes things clear.

Conclusion is core temp > total temp > Max 61

So just keep it below a total of 61.

I agree with truckerguy, your temps are fine. Worry about your Core Temps as different motherboards will read different socket temps. My mobo reads 10°C less than the actual core temp (TMPIN1). The way I see it, you still have 12° of headroom for overclocking. Also, I would opt for some better thermal paste. G751 works ok, but based of the batches I've gotten, its doesnt perform anything like that "80 thermal paste showdown," test says it does. I get about 3-4° cooler using OCZ Freeze.

Also, what fan did you pair to the one that came with the Evo? Are you using the same fan header for both fans? I wonder if maybe they're fighting one another instead of working together. The ideal thing would be to have the exact same type fan on both ends, with a splitter connected to the cpu fan header, and the green wire removed from one of the fans. This way, they both run at the same RPM.

Nice rig BTW! +rep thumb.gif

ok thanks guys.... from what i understand going by the average of the cores would be fine?

i chucked the coolermaster fan and put 2x cougar 120mm pwm fans in set to turbo in bios, there are two separate pwm headers for cpu fans.
