AMD Fx-8350 and CM Hyper 212 Evo temperatures

Hi, recently I had few temperature problems with my CPU because of the motherboard (ASRock 990FX Extreme 3) and stock cooler, so I changed for an Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo aftermarket cooler. While playing BF3, my temps get up to 63°C according to AI Suite II (asus) and up to 55-56 according to HWinfo64 (CPU#0). My question is: are those temps normal for this processor combined with this cooler?

From what I heard, some people hardly get over 50°C with those two parts...

Thanks for reading.

  1. Try to stay under 62 degrees. cel.
  2. It won't damage or do much to processor if I stay under 62?
  3. I'm overclocked to 5.1 , but I have a huge air cooler and I never go mid 50's.

    Still seems a little warm for that setup , what paste did you use and is the 212 installed nice and flush to the cpu.
  4. I used the cooler master thermal paste that came with the cooler. And yes, the 212 is well installed.

    Edit: By the way, my CPU isn't overclocked.
  5. what is your case ? How are the fans set up ?

    and 63 C will not harm your processor
  6. My case is an old case tbh, but still is solid. couldn't tell the brand.

    does it have any fans installed?

    What size are they ?
  8. Yeah, 2 fans. One on the front that suck ambient air, Cooler master 120mm and one that push the air out on the back 120mm too.

    Also, my motherboard never gets over 40°C so that's not the problem.
