Cpu heat question (FX 6300)

Just built my new comp and was playing shogun maxed, the cpu was at around 85 fahrenheit, when I closed the game. I'm using a be quiet dark rock pro cooler. The positioning of the case is also in a very precarious as it's under my desk and about 1 foot away from the radiator so I guess I'll have to work out a better placement.

So essentially can anyone here running a 6300 tell me their average temps in fahrenheit when they're gaming?

Thanks ;)

  1. Best answer
    Playing BF4 on Ultra before i replaced my 6300 with the 8320, i had average temps around 120 to 125 F (45-50C).
    This is with an overclock at 4.4 GHz on this cooler:

    85 is practically room temperature.
  2. 44c is what mine maxed at. Im OCed to 4.3ghz.

    damn, I was reading a few other threads and I got worried as people said anything over 80 was very bad, I think they meant Celsius. Thanks man :)
