I got a A10-6800K running with CM 212 Evo cooler, and the package temp reported by HWiNFO is averaging at 78C, without any overclocking on the CPU frequency, just 200mhz increase on NB and 50mhz on GFX.
Is this normal?
Btw, I'm using open air test bench style case with a room temp being around 17C.
Forgot to mention that the average temp was coming from 17hours of prime95 blend test
My max was around 83C, I believe
It is probably an OK temperature, but I'm just somewhat disappointed because from the reviews that I've read about that cooler has been pretty decent. It was just a surprise to me that the temp goes that high at stock while being stressed.
Could it be a problem of open air case? Maybe the cooler? Or CPU itself?
Does AF fan and SP fan has direct relation to noise level?
I've actually just realized something, I have an ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ and I'm using one of its software called A-Tuning. I've set the fans to spin around 1,200 RPM @ 60C, but it actually only stays at around 800-900RPM when reaching high 70C package temp according to HWiNFO.
The CPU temperature that A-Tuning reports is idle @ 26C, but the CPU package temp is idle @ 43C from HWiNFO.
Do you know why there's a difference between the two?
AMD cards have weird ratings under 40c. Blow a desk fan or something onto the build and run HWmonitor or something while running Prime95 for an hour, let me know your temps. Let it cool back down and repeat without the desk fan, let me know the difference.
Sorry that it took me a while, at least 1 core keeps on failing before 1 hour of prime95.....Should that concern me?
The temp with an USB fan was 73 for package temp and 36 for CPU temp, without fan was 76 for package temp and 43 for CPU temp.
Would that be a fault of bad patch of the CPU or the motherboard? cuz like I said, I only increased the frequency of NB by 200 and GFX by 50 It's kinda sad lol
I'm still able to RMA the CPU or motherboard, so which one do you think is the issue?
