Stock FX8350 + Hyper 212 EVO = 33c Idle 55c Prime95 : Acceptable?

Do these seem like high temps for that cooler? I read somewhere that someone was getting 38c running Prime95. Wondering if i should re-apply, or does the 33c-55c range represent a good and proper application of the cooler?

  1. Sounds ideal to me. If someone is getting 38C running prime95 with that processor, they must have faulty temp software.

    Even at stock speeds / no overclocking?

    I was just under the impression (could be mistaken) that this cooler would be pretty good (not great) for overclocks. I'm not remotely interested in overclocking, but does that range (33c - 55c) seem warm for stock clocks for a cooler which can support overclocks. (Is that making any sense?). Or, do those temperatures seem high for stock speeds, but appropriate for overclocked speeds?
  3. What do you want me to say? It is fine.
    Comparison: My i5-2500K's cores are between 31C and 36C while I'm posting this with nothing else running. It is only a 95W processor. Your FX-8350 is a 125W processor. My i5 reaches upper 50Cs stressed, yours is in the same neighborhood. Sounds to me like the cooler is doing fine.
  4. I got Noctua D-14. maxes at 54c on Prime95 stress test, stock.
  5. Yep they are good safe temperatures way under the TJ Max of that CPU. No worries. If you have a good motherboard and PSU, overclocking is appealing.
  6. The cooler is the best when it comes to temps

    Ur temps are way under tjmax(70c) so no wrries and load temp of 38 is very cool with a 125w eight core cpu
