just got my ninja 3 today paired with mx-2 thermal paste, using a crappy mobo and a crappy cpu, will buy better ones later

mobo: N68C-GS FX

CPU : amd athlon II 3x 455 ( soon fx-6100 )

as far as temps go ( stock cpu )

prime 95 large fft around 30 mins, temp is 40-41c ( cant tell max temp cause my hwmonitor is high on something, if cpu temp increases, max temp increases..)

example idle 30c - shows max 70c

update ; last temps were with the case's side panel removed, now when i closed it and placed 2x 120mm fans (air input / output ; 1x 120mm fan intake @ front, 1x 120mm output @ bottom of the case, 1x 120mm fan output at side panel + PSU outtake)

temps are now 50c after 10 mins prime95 large fft.. fan speed set to 1/3 with the ninja 3 fan controller idling at 32-34 are those a bit high for a ninja 3?

got 37 - 67c idle / max load with stock cooler with stock paste

oh and there is a quite a large scratch at the side of the heatsink in the ninja 3 ( ill post a picture of it in a second )

ok got fx-6100 now, and its idling at 38c... lowered voltage by 0.025, stock clocks & multi

i cleared the thermal paste and re-applied the same way i used on my old processor, and again i cant test the max temps cause my system underclocks it for some reason at some point -.- ( under 60c )

hmm it seems that it doesnt let it go past 50c''

edit : tightened cooler screws, adjusted fan positions, now idles around 32-35c ambient probably 22-25
