Hey, Im asking this for a friend.

He recently bought a new custom build pc with a AMD fx 8320.
The stockcooler makes 6200+- RPM when playing league of legends (a pretty easy game to run). without playing games 4000 RPM.

Is there anything we can do? He is a nono with computers tho so I need to explain it to him, thats why I am asking :p 

Thanks!

Best solution

You cant really make the rpms go down, or cool the cpu more. You can try to have more airflow in the case with additional fans to help with heat, or invest into an aftermarket cooler. My stock cooler hit in the 6k range too.

The stock cooler is a little buzz saw. Replace it, and your friend will be happier. Look around the forum to see what people suggest for those FX chips (if I remember right, it's a 125W chip, so it's gonna get toasty!)

Well, haha he wants his RPM to 2000 because he thinks his computer is about to explode! He doesnt have any money atm, but he decided to not use his computer anymore till monday (till he can go to a local shop for IT service)

a hyper evo 212 costs $25, will run much quieter, and cool the cpu better. it's a good investment.

6000 rmps is fine, just loud. Using something like MSI afterburner or razer game booster checking the core temps as long as he dosent surpass 70-80 C he should be fine. Mine hit 6k when it was only 50 Degrees .

He hits the 15C. nothing much, he just doesnt believe, he want to pay 100's of euro's for a solution which isn't really an solution. He is just stressin' him in real life atm :p

Well 15 C is actually extra low... either a sensor is wrong or he has a great cpu for overclocking.

Well, core temp says 15C, BIOS says 50C

Yeah then there isnt anything to be worrying about, 50C is normal operating temps for a stock air cooler.

Well, he is still not convinced. Anyways, he has a custom build pc, but he didn't even knew how to set up a new wallpaper until today : D.
Don't know why he custom builds one, he is doesn't want to touch any of those things but his friends can do it haha. Maybe a standard medion or acer was better for him.

Yeah, well there really is nothing to worry about, pretty much anything online can tell you 50 is about standard.
