AMD FX-8350 @ Stock - 59*C Load - 28*C Idle - ARE THESE NORMAL? - Aftermarket Cooler

Hello my new FX-8350 goes up to 60*C (under load BF4)
My old FX-4100 never under load went up to 48*C (BF4/Load) with a Stock Cooler.

BUT, my new FX-8350 uses a aftermarket Cooler Master GeminII M4
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005XOY87Y/

(It actually runs 8*C~ cooler with the aftermarket one)
But is 59*C anything to worry about? I know the Thermal Paste is applied properly (even tied re-applying it a few times), and its running @ Stock (4.0Ghz, I can go to 4.4Ghz @ Stock Voltage) but I run @ Stock.



Should I at all be worrying?
It seems to go from 20*C to 50*C VERY FAST and back.
Even idle it can fluctuate from 20*C to 28*C pretty fast.

59@ Load is very good
and 20s Idle is also very good

Really? Its just a shock having it run hotter then my FX-4100, I know that as it draws more energy it is going to get hotter.

So what would you say the max is?
As I may try OC.

with that cooler, you might manage to squeeze out a slight overclock.

Well I can run @ 4.3 - 4.4Ghz Stable without needed to up the voltage.

EDIT:
Actually running Prime95 it BSOD's so It obviously not stable :p  i'll try putting up the voltage a bit.

Oh, well in that case, maybe you could go a bit higher on that OC

It is not posted on AMDs site, but I believe that 62-65 C is the limit on the fx-8350 so you should be ok.

I stopped using core temp a while ago because I found that it was not recording accurate temperatures on my PCs. Do you have any software for monitoring that came with your motherboard? If not, try downloading OCCT. It is stress testing software, but it temperature monitor seems constant with my AI suite temperatures from ASUS.

Another thing to try if you are still concerned is seeing how far you can down volt your processor and still being able to hit 4.0GHZ. If you can hit 4.4 just fine at stock voltage, you might try seeing how low you can go and get 4.0ghz. That should bring down your temps.

I idle at 11C, but that is with closed loop water cooling.
