Should I worry about the cpu temp or something wrong?!

So I just fresh installed Corsair H100i on my FX 8350 (not OC yet), it is 2x Corsair AF120 pull setup on top of radiator. Here a thing, at idle I got around 45~48*C and full load at 58*C. Should I worry about cpu temp? Any suggestion for improvement? Also I using Corsair 600T case so on the top of MB is kind a tight when radiator installed.

  1. You are within the safe daily operating temp of around 62c for your FX chip.

    What programs are you using for cpu testing and temp monitoring that you experienced a 58c max?
  2. Those temps seem a little high (to me) for idling only, under load a little less abnormal, but still. Did you seat the water block correctly, and it has sufficient paste on it? Have you tried changing fan profiles with Corsair Link 2?
  3. I am using HardWareMonitor from CPUID, it was 63 when I play BF4 and I was so scare and exit the game

    I followed the instruction step by step and use the pre-applied thermal paste. No I haven't tried b/c I read from some thread from this forum sad it wasn't necessary, got confused
  5. you should work on your fan configuration

    have front, bottom and side as intakes while having top and back fans as exhaust.

    I have 1x 200mm front intake, 2x 120mm top exhaust, 1x 120mm back intake. All fan are high CFM model and like I said I'm using Corsair 600T case so that pretty much fan I can put in
  7. try your back intake as an exhaust and i think that it may help

    It was the original setup b4 I put the H100i in, didn't help then I tried back intake according to one of thread from this forum :??:

    well. maybe the issue is the thermal compound

    I will update right after I change the thermal paste
  11. So after I replace the thermal paste idle temp at 33*C and when I play Watch Dogs and BF4 temp at 53*C, is this acceptable guys???
  12. 53c is a great improvement

    So it means it is ok now right? I couldn't sleep these days b/c of that :))
  14. yes, you are perfectly fine but i am not sure about overclocking as testing software would test all 8 threads and generate a lot of heat.
    there is different types of testing methods and Prime95 would produce the highest stability result but would also generate the most heat.
    check out the the AMD overclocking club on toms.
