evilthx It was eating at me and eating at me so I decided to put my H115i back in the computer and see if it was in fact dead. It is not dead. I don't know how the hell I had it running before but it wasn't right. It's back on the CPU and it is hooked up correctly. I hooked the pump back to the USB header and I am controlling the AIO with Corsair Link. The fans on the radiator are hooked to the headers on the pump. At first temps were pretty high in AIDA64... like in the 60c+ range (Package) where the Hyper 212 EVO was in the 40c+ (Package). I don't know what it defaults to if it isn't hooked up to the Corsair Link software but the fans have pretty much been at around 1100rpm the whole time I have used the H115i and the pump... who knows what rpm's it was spinning at. I opened up the Corsair Link and was messing around and got to the profiles... it was on Balanced. I put it on Performance and right away the pump speed jumps to 3000+rpm!! The fans ramped up as well. I re-ran AIDA64 and O what a difference. It is 75f in my room. The first pic shows the package temp at 0.5c... not sure why it did that but for the majority of the test it sat at near 54c under full load. I am "cool" with that. I am still going to get another AIO. Just shows how much of a beast the EVO 212 is because it topped out at 48c on the same test.

evilthx Found my Hyper 212 EVO. It is now on the FX-8350 @4.3Ghz overclocked and WILL NOT go above 48c on Prime 95 small fft's even after 30 continuous minutes. Ambient room temp is 23c (74f) I did find out that 3 of the 4 standoffs for my Corsair H115i were loose. I think this is the main cause of the super fast rise in temps when testing in prime 95. I will order a new AIO soon... not a Corsair. I want to see that there is coolant moving.

At this point that is what I am leaning towards. I wish I had my Hyper 212 still to toss on it while I order another AIO.... Going with the Enermax LiqFusion 240

Could possibly be a heatspreader that isn't flat.

evilthx Wow, I forgot all about being a member here! Well let us revive this old thread...

With the exception of a few new items, my build is still the same. I have upgraded to the ASUS ROG Strix RX480 graphics card since I started this thread, just two days ago swapped out the 8320E for an 8350 Black Edition and I use Steelseries Keyboard and Mouse. I am also using an LG 29" UltraWide monitor 21:9 @2560x1080. I am still using the Corsair H115i AIO but this CPU is WAY hotter... I fear the pump may have stopped or slowed WAY down. So with that said, I have a question or two on the FX-8350. The CPU is not overclocked and I ran Prime95 for almost 10min. Does this look safe/normal to all of you?

1. What is the max safe package temp of this CPU?

2. Anyone know what Thermal Max Temp of this CPU?

In reality, it can't.
There is an algorithm that AMD uses to figure core temps on FX , it isn't accurate until core temps reach 30C + , generally.

It's confusing , but the package temp on hwinfo is the actual cpu core temp, cpu temp in hwinfo is the socket temp.

At 32C max core temp, you have a ton of thermal headroom on the core.

As for the socket temp, do what you can to get some airflow on that area, place a fan on the back side of the motherboard over the socket area if you can.
