Thermal paste should fill it and you shouldn't see anything drastic go on with your temp.

Yeah, you want to push air across the heatsink.

ah ok thx, was just wondering cause after 20 runs of IBT standard
1.368 max vcore 4.0 ghz fx-6100
idle socket temp is 33c
socket temp 57c max
core temp 45c max
they seem a little high for this cooler( scythe ninja 3 )

I have little experience with scythe products, but minor scratches will not raise temps noticeably.

1.368 max vcore 4.0 ghz fx-6100 < FX are hot chips those temps are normal

thanks, just checking.
my pc shuts itself down when socket temp hits 63-64c =(

my pc shuts itself down when socket temp hits 63-64c =( < that's to prevent damage to your computer.
Feb 16, 2013, 12:48 AM
63-64c =( too hot for an FX chip be careful not to damage your system
Feb 16, 2013, 12:49 AM
63c SOCKET TEMP
the cores are 48-50c when it happens

it shows max temp of 70c
isnt that the max safe core temp?
Feb 16, 2013, 9:39 AM
it shows max temp of 70c < Max and you want to stay well away from that on an FX cpu...MY fx8120 on my other computer never goes above 50.
