Hey guys !
I wanted a good price rig for Dark Souls II in April, and also a good cpu to multitasking and to do my work on Premiere Pro, Photoshop etc.
So I wanted to keep my mobo since I didn't have enough money to do a complete new rig.
Here's my rig actually :
AMD FX 8320 Vishera 3.5 GHZ (I don't want to OC it)
Asus M5A88-M Evo (Bios 1803)
MSI Afterburner Radeon 7770 1GB DDR5
8 GB DDR2 RAM
Cooler Master Hyper TX3
So before I start, I bought the TX3 because my case isn't big enough to put a backplate under the mobo. But I thought it was good enough to cool down my CPU.
I was playing CS:GO with friends (so Teamspeak makes my cpu work...), and I monitored my core temps with HWMonitor. The max core temp was about 60 °C ! I saw on the Internet that it better not to be above 62 °C.
Here's my core temps completely :
Idle : 18/25 °C
With teamspeak on : 30 °C
On internet or watching a video online : +/- 35 °C
Playing CS:GO (Source Engine) : 50° C, max 60 °C
My socket temps also vary between 35 °C Idle and 64 °C on load.
Also, my ambient temp isn't cool enough, since I'm in a room under the roof, the roof keeps the warmth and there's isnt enough air.
I changed the cooler since the one from AMD was too loud (about 5800 RPM) and I wanted something to keep my cpu cool and quiet.
The CPU is new (bought it monday), so I'm a bit scared when I see these temps...
Any idea ?
I forgot to say that I'm using the thermal paste that comes with the cooler, I don't think I put too much paste though...
Yes, I know, I wanted to buy a Hyper 212, but I don't have enough space to put a backplate...
And since I don't have enough money and space to buy a new case, I don't know how I can deal with that...
So for now on, i'm leaving my case opened with a fan blowing some fresh air.
Nice, I thought the backplate was really thick... Although, my case doesn't have an open side to access the backplate easily, so I would need to unmount the mobo.
Mh, I need to see with the shop if I can replace my TX3 to an EVO 212 then. Thanks guys !
Nice, it seems affordable for a water cooling system !
I think I'll wait a little with the TX3 before buying a new cooler, too much money thrown with the graphic cards and cpu.
Thanks for the help guys, you're great !
