My phenomII 955 black is running at around 43c and up to 48c when oc to a 3.6; should i be worried. i'm using the stock cooler and the cpu came with its own thermal paste. i have three case fans as well as the psu fan. the ambient temp is around 78 degrees Fahrenheit. i'm worried the present temps will effect the longevity of my pc. oh, and the mb temp is a steady 32c

thanks fellas

Perfectly fine temps, especially for any OC on stock cooling. Nothing to worry about there mate, just keep the air circulating in the case as you have done so far.
I'm assuming these are idle temps. If you wanna get the full picture just in case, run prime95 for 15 minutes, with RealTemp running alongside. Just remember that the temps your CPU will hit will be an extreme case under that scenario, since prime95 will keep the CPU at 100% load as long as it runs.

Hey J,

I looked for the RealTemp program but it said it was only for i7 chips so i ran OCCT for 1 hr. it brought the temp up to under 73c for all four cores and the temp shown by my AI Suite showed 64c throughout the entire test time? all the graphs that were produced passed without errors. the vcore graph showed a red line a little more than halfway between 3.78 and 3.8v. does all this sound kosher? Also i was doing some web surfing which was slow in responding plus i opened another piece of software monitoring which was slow to open and close.

thanks for the help my friend

73 is completely fine
95 would be pushing it a little, but anything up to there is nothing to worry about.
things would definitely go slow during a stress test, since all your processing power is already in use.

your longevity won't be affected in any noticeable way; every part of your pc will absolutely be obsolete and worthless long before it dies of old age, even at extremely high temperatures.

Thank you my noob friendly advisor; this was my first build, with some help from a semi pro, and i'm just worried about my baby :~)
Your consolations are very much appreciated; hope you had a wonderful Easter!

73C is not OK the max for this CPU is 62C see http://products.amd.com/en-us/DesktopCPUDetail.aspx?id=... I recommend getting a better cooler before you overclock a Hyper 212+ is cheap and works very well

Most disturbing; glad i did the stress test. Guess i'll slow it back down to stock speed and run the linpack test again then wait for a better cooler to start playing around with overclocking. thanks for the info........i maybe should at least read the instructions for the expensive toys :~)

Be seeing you

Hey brother Simon,

I backed off my overclock and made the phenom2 955 run as a 965 and the temp never exceeded 58c in OCCT. thank you for the direction. I looked in to the hyper212plus and it seem to be a great cooler for the money if not for that bothersome gap. all in all, it's way better than what i have plus you can add another fan on it; awesome!
