CPU Heat problem

Hello people! So I recently made my first computer, but i'm having some heat problems with my CPU. On some games, my CPU goes up to 45-48 degrees Celsius. I'm using the stock fan, and I have the AMD fx-8350.

Now I was thinking about buying the scorpion evo 212 fan due to the great reviews, and i'm hoping that would bring the temperature down to maybe 30-35 degrees Celsius. Does this sound right?

Any suggestions on good heat-syncs?
My budget is around $40.

-Thanks!

45 - 48 is fine with a stock heat sink.
Yup get a Cooler Master Evo 212. It's a brilliant cooler. I'm planing to get one too for my i7 4770.
However make sure that it does not interfere if you've got High Profile RAMs like the Corsair Vengeance.

45 C Is a perfect temperature if they dont go above 65C dont worry, dont bother with a aftermarket cooler if your not overclocking. I have a i5 4670k water cooled and it goes up to 65 C Overclocked at 4.4ghz 1.3v

normal temps. but if you want to overclock or want even a cooler temp this should do it.

Sweet! thanks for the info. So no short nor long term damage will be done to the CPU right? Also if there's a CPU that has blue LED's on it that you know of, I would love to hear it. Thanks!

nope if the cpu was at 85-90c a very big risk of being damaged.

85-90 is not correct from my reading

61 degrees is the limit on that CPU

please read my first link provided for verification.

intel CPU's go that high but not the AMD's

do not let that CPU go over 55C it could very well destroy that CPU. The link I provided has all the details

i totally disagree. 55-65c will NEVER damage the cpu.
