62 is max temp , and yes 212 should keep you under 60c , I use a deepcool mc300gx and it keeps my 8350 under 55c @ 4.4 so the 212 should do better

thanks guys, is 62 really max temps. or is 70 allowed? i mean wouldnt it shutdown before it frys anyways?
Feb 8, 2013, 11:47 PM
62 is max.
Feb 8, 2013, 11:49 PM
Well the EVO can definitely handle the 8350 @ 4.5Ghz but temps will be higher There is no official MAX TEMP for the 8350 it seems. Most do not want to go over 62c for 24/7 use.
It all depends on how much voltage you need

My 8120 shut down around 68.
Feb 9, 2013, 2:04 AM
hmm. i guess if i monitor temps i should be fine, and full load usually only when stress testing anyways right.

Phanteks PH-TC12DX, new model from phanteks, it's usually around 60$ either in the usa or canada.
A bit late, but just to give that option.
