Hi everyone,

i do not know whether 66°C is critical temperature on my cpu AMD FX-8350. This happens when i play Battlefield 4 for example. Even my cooler (Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO) is on 100% rpm at that temperature.

Thanks for any advice.

The tx3 ain't that good for handling the temps of that processor, you should get a 212 evo or better.

Yes, maximum recommended core temperature is 61C for the FX series. You need to see if the thermal paste was properly applied and the heatsink properly installed. You may not have enough airflow in your system as well.

If you are overclocking, or using automatic settings to overclock, you might try manually lowering the voltage provided to the cores.

redo TP, re seat heat sink, clean your case air duster and make sure you have good airflow.

this is the correct thing to do that heatsink is very capable to cool that cpu at stock

at stock you'll be fine with this cooler even if you have the turbo on it should be good, the 212 evo would have been the better choice but some people have clearance issuse with it just add redo the heatsink and TP and add a couple fans to the system, clean the case out and if on the floor move off the floor and move at least a couple inches from the wall also, if anything take your side panel off and play that way it can lower temps by 5c sometimes

Is it the core temp or socket temp ?

So i'm going to buy new cooler 212 evo and new PSU (EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2) instead of the old 600W Corsair becouse i found it was not enough.

Thanks all of you.

850W psu? Are you running dual 780's or what? :o

I use a 1000w with occasional 8320 and dual 660ti and I like having the head room you won't use the full watts just what you need

Install hwinfo and you will find cpu temp, motherboard and cou 0 (cpu package).
Cpu temp shouldn't go over 70 C, and cpu 0 (package) over ~61 C.

During Battlefield 4 within 20 minutes. Even i do not know how to test CPU. Maybe now its dangerous for test, i must wait for a new cooler.

You can use a stress test like prime 95 and monitor it with hwinfo

As zachparr2442 said run prime and see whats going on with the temps. If they go beyond the limit I told u then its not good.
Is your cpu OCed ? Or the graphics card ?

Not anymore.. Probably i had some overclock by this: http://
This is a utility program for my motherboard.
Before i have it on "Auto" then i got high 67°C. Now i have it on "High Performance" and i have max 64°C. Yet.

Always use bios for OC

No, I meant OC manualy using settings in BIOS, not this settings "high perfromance".
