Solved Should I look at the cpu socket or core temps? Tags: Core CPUs Socket Last response: April 28, 2014 12:13 PM in CPUs Share itixmix April 28, 2014 5:11:51 AM I have OCed my 8350 to 4.5ghz @1.41v (is that a nice voltage for this cpu?) My question is when I prime the cpu socket goes to 65C - 70C and core temps go to 45C - 50C according to AIDA64. So which temperature reading should I be worried about? and whats the max temps for the cpu socket and cores? Regards itixmix More about : cpu socket core temps Reply to itixmix RickMa April 28, 2014 5:24:49 AM Always look at core temps. Reply to RickMa m 0 l maddogfargo a b à CPUs April 28, 2014 6:38:06 AM If you are OCing with the stock heatsink...don't. A good budget cooler like a Xigmatek Gaia, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Pro or EVO will ba MUCH better.

Personally I try to look at everything as a whole, but Core temp is the important one. Reply to DanKem06 m 0 l itixmix April 28, 2014 11:04:56 AM you vaguely answered my question. Just to point out I have a H100i mounted on the 8350! So is 1.41v decent for an 8350 @4.5ghz and what can max socket temp for my motherboard (M5a99FX PRO R2.0) and what are the core temps for the 8350 (some people say 80C) Thank you for the initial answers! Reply to itixmix m 0 l DanKem06 a b à CPUs April 28, 2014 12:01:37 PM I would say your voltage is okay, but its hard to say without you doing stress test for stability. As far as socket temps... I want to say those seem right but I am looking further into it Reply to DanKem06 m 0 l Best solution DanKem06 a b à CPUs April 28, 2014 12:12:02 PM http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1654262/8350-runni... This is saying your temps for the socket, using water cooler for CPU is normal. Reply to DanKem06 Share DanKem06 a b à CPUs April 28, 2014 12:13:17 PM As far as answering what the MAX temp is....
