Just built my brother in laws new pc with a fx8150 and 990fx sabertooth, and the motherboard will OC the cpu itself using the optimal performance and goes to 4.2Ghz from the stock 3.6. its on stock cooler and while at the OC temps dont seem terrible but it was just under load for playing wow. So wats the max temp for this cpu on stock cooling? I really dont need to OC just wondering if it can maintain it so that temps dont get to hot. If i remember the OC temps @ 4.2 were in the mid 50s
hey dude max temp for this chip is 62c and u will be fine on ur stock cooler just if u do start overclocking then get some after market cooling as ull start to higher volts which means more higher temps..
