AMD 955 BE Tags: CPUs AMD Last response: May 5, 2010 7:02 PM in CPUs Share kingneptune117 May 5, 2010 3:53:47 AM I am thinking about buying this CPU, but I have been hearing reports of overheating. I do not plan to do any overclocking to it until I buy a new high performance heatsink fan. Will I have problems with the stock cooler, even without overclcoking?

People who complain about overheating is due to poor airflow in their case. You won't have any problems with the stock cooler... It is enough to keep the processor cool at stock speeds m 0 l megamanx00 a b à CPUs May 5, 2010 3:34:43 PM It shouldn't overheat at stock settings unless you have a high ambient temperature with crappy air flow, or perhaps just bad airflow and big GPU dumping heat inside your case. m 0 l i4yue May 5, 2010 5:14:41 PM most gpu's today have vents that pull the exhaust air to the back anyways. m 0 l saint19 a c 159 à CPUs a b À AMD May 5, 2010 7:02:34 PM Overheating? I have the X4 955 and the only problem that I had was when I try to get the 4GHz with the stock cooler jeje. Don't believe that, the X4 955 run an a good temp with the stock cooler, around 38C on idle and 43 in load. Also this temps depends of the airflow of the case. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
