My new build has no operating system yet ( I am working on that ) and when i turn it on and let it run for awhile it stays at about 63 C and sometimes 64 C. I have the AMD FX 8320 and the max safe temp is 62 degrees. What REALLY worries me is that this is while idle. SO if I am gaming it would rise even higher which would scare me even worse. I am using the stock Heatsink/Cooler. Whhy is my temp so high? I have a budget of about 25-45 USD including shipping and taxes. So if I did buy a better heatsink/Cooler would it lower the temps? By how much? I have heard that the Hper 212 EVO is the best around my price range but am looking for recommendations. I would like to be running much cooler. If i did get a liquid cooler then i would need to add in cheap mosfet heatsinks. Thanks for the help!! Also I was planning on overclocking but i bought a terrible quality motherboard and my temps are way too high for even thinking about OC'ing. Sorry for the typos as i am typing this on my brothers iPod. PS: BTW I thought i shoulld tell you I am running at stock speeds.

Did you apply thermal paste? How did you put it on? Yes you should get a after market cooler. When applying thermal paste you place a small ball in the center only. The compression of the cooler takes care of spreading it out evenly across the processor. To much or little paste will cause heat issues. Good luck.

Well it came pre-applied on the stock cooler so idk? I had to install it multiple times because i kept messing up lolz but it kept smearing everywhere :( . Any suggestions on a cooler/liquid cooler under 40 USD?

The hyper should be ok. If you mess up with the paste you must clean it all off and start over. a small amount in the center and that's it. Let the cooler do the spreading.
