Please help with AMD FX-8350 Temperatures.

Hello, I have an AMD FX-8350 with hyper 212 evo heatsink. I am fairly unhappy with my temperatures, and am wondering if anything is wrong with my setup. I know I applied the perfect amount of artic silver and seated the heatsink perfectly. I am a little iffy about airflow in my case, however.

Here are the HWmonitor temps during idle

And under load

Please note that the max CPUTIN temperatures are wrong for some reason.

Idle CPUTIN Max was 36C

Prime95 Load CPUTIN was 58 C

Ambient temp is 24 C.

Are these temps fairly decent or do you think I should be getting better temps with the hyper 212 evo and FX-8350.

I'm running stock clock speed with all of the default settings in the BIOS.

Am I doing something wrong or would you be fine with these temps?

Thank you

I havent had an experience with the FX-8350 but I do have experience with that cooler (as I own one, using it right now).

My Idle temp is currently 32 C with a Phenom II x4, but it's hit up to 35 C since I last looked a bit ago. I'd say on idle you might be a little high but it'd be nothing to worry about. The 58 C for Prime95 may be right, as I hear Prime95 is quite CPU intensive.

Sorry, no super good answer here but it is a comparison. I've never seen my CPU jump beyond 48 C which was during some video editing I was doing.

How much paste did you apply? I ask because if you put put too much where there is minimal contact between the CPU and the heatsink, temps will rise. I did that before when I had a 212+ and my idle temps would be around 40C and under load at 57-60C. Stupidly, I used ALL the paste that came with the heatsink.
When I replaced it with the 212 EVO, I applied just a small amount of paste. These are my temps running a FX 8320.

first thing. You need to show your core temperatures. Which seem to be in the high 50's from my guesstimate. The temp you are reporting is the socket temp, which is not the temp you should be judging performance on.

Also, if you look up towards your cpu vcore. Under your load it is at 1.45, which is of course going to send your temperatures to the moon. That's for going past 4.5ghz. FX procs need some attention. You need to disable turbo boost in bios, restart and reenter the bios. Your vcore should drop much lower after doing that. 1.2-1.3 or so.

The vcore you have right now is what is causing those high temperatures. Try that first and let me know how it goes.

I used a small amount of paste (A pea sized glob), so I don't think that is the issue, and the heatsink is seated pretty nicely (An experienced friend verified that everything looked pretty good). Our idle temps look very similar so that is good. However, your temps under load are about 10 C better. Also, what monitoring software are you using? I really like they display. Is it free? Thank you.

Will disabling turbo boost decrease CPU performance in high demanding programs?

Actually, no it won't...turbo boost is primarily for single core performance and will "spool up" one core to accomodate for that when other cores aren't loaded. So, essentially it's to improve performance on things like iTunes, if that was all you happened to be running. However, in heavily threaded applications and heavy use, Turbo Core would never engage. If you're overclocking at some point, you especially want to disable TC and CNQ in the BIOS, as well as any powersaver features.

I turned off turbo core but the voltage still reaches about 1.3-1.4. The temperatures didn't go down much with this. Also, I've noticed that my socket temperature is much higher than my core temperature. My core temperature reaches a max of 44 under load, where my socket is still reaching a temperature of 60 C under load. Is this normal?

Core temperatures are what matter. The limit on Core temperatures are around 60. So if you are at mid 40's you are doing great. Type in overclocking guide for fx procs. It will help you fine tune your computer.

My 8120 at 4.4 ghz ran around the same before I changed my cooler. Nothing to worry about.

Socket temps can run a tad higher than core temps. If you are not overclocking, you can actually undervolt your CPU a tad to get the heat down. Try manually setting the core voltage to more like 1.2 and see if your CPU doesn't run any cooler.

hey your mainboard is not made for 8350 see hardware specs and it is 95 tp mb not 125

And under load

hello bye a new mainbord its not made for it
its not support 8350 fx at all and its a 95tpd bord instead of a 125 TPD
i konw the board verry well i have also board like that

Hi, im new to forums and such, but i believe i am having a similar problem as FriendlyDru. My FX8350 came the other day and i have it installed in an ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard and temperatures are going from 8c all the way to 28c in a matter of seconds, sometimes in literally the space of seconds.

My friend also has an fx8350 and says that he has the same issue. We are both using CoreTemp to monitor temps, maybe its a bug with core temp? im pretty sure you couldn't even get fluctuations that large with liquid nitrogen and a blow torch...

Get HWMonitor to confirm your temps.

If your temperatures are going up and down fairly crazy, it could be that your heat sink isn't seated properly and goes up and down when it does make contact.

AIDA64 is what the guy used to show you his core temps. I use the same program alone with HW Monitor in the background for when I run something.

My temps are fairly similar to his if only a tad lower. around 9 degrees on idle. Hovering around 29 under full load of Prime95.

Just to add, 60C on core is what is going to give you issues. From what I've seen/read anything about 60C on your core temps will make your system just go ape shit. From BSOD onwards to just system crashes.
