AMD BE 955 HELP

I'm having problems with my Amd phenom 955 be... when running games ect it seems nice and stable with stock cooling around mid 50's degrees celcius however if i log onto facebook and click through pictures all of a sudden the fan spins rapidly high and the temp spikes very high also but usually subsides after a few seconds there starts again???

Is it time for me to replace my stock h/s and fan?

  1. It sounds to me like the h/s may not be mounted properly or maybe the thermal paste is not applied properly or has dried, If you plan on oc'ing then i recommend you purchase a Cooler Master Hyper H212 Plus
  2. I agree. Either the heatsink isn't seated right or you have to little or to much thermal paste applied to the heat spreader.
  3. either reinstal your current hsf or buy a cm h212+, as stated above
