I recently upgraded my computer with an Athlon X2 7850BE. I am using the stock HSF. I am concerned about the operating temperature on this thing. PCWizard 2009 shows a CPU temp of 56C, while it shows a Core #1 temp of 37C. On startup, the BIOS usually shows 51C for CPU temp. Also, when I check the voltage and temperature within the PCWizard GUI, it shows a "toffset" of 26C. I am worried that my cpu is running too hot. Which reading should I look at in PC Wizard, CPU temp or Core temp? Is the 56C CPU temp too hot, or is the Core #1 37C too hot or okay?
I am using that as well. The CPU temp is 51-52C idle and gets to 61-63C max while running 3dMark Vantage two or three times in a row. The Core temps are 32-33 idle and get maxed at 41-43C under 3dMark Vantage tests.
well i run a 7750BE. i got a little bit of an overclock on it (3.1ghz 1.35V). When i let coretemp and prime95 run for a few hours i usually end up with a high core temp in the mid 50's, depending on the air temp. So far it hasn't given up the ghost.
Anyway AMD lists the max temp at 73C for it, most people say 10C below is best for a max, and 15 for a 24/7. so unless you run prime95 24/7 you should be just fine. Even using your higher cpu temp.
If you are concerend get a new HSF, the one that came with my 7750 was total garbage, you probally got a simmilar one, a tiny little thing with a 60mm fan. A $10 one would most likey preform worlds better. (I use an old alpine 7 i had laying around)
The BE's were aimed at the overclockers so i think they just put any garbage HSF in there they had assuming 99% of the people that bought it would put it right in the trash.
Me three ,,I am running mine [7850be] with an Arctic Cooler 64Pro,and the temps never get over 40+c as far as I know,the thing that I like about the A Cooler64 is that it removes air all around the ram,northbridge and cpu area,which in a large server case is really handy..
I've got a 7750BE, I run it at 3.0Ghz and it gets around 60C under load, I wouldn't worry about your temp, it's not hot enough to damage the processor. Oddly enough my core temps usually run at least 10C lower than my cpu temp, but my Phenom 9850 the core temp is always 10-15C warmer than the cpu temp.
