AM3+ FX-4100 Zambezi

So I have noticed my new AM3+ setup runs WAY cool. I have it overclocked to a nice 4.3ghz and only hit 20c while gaming on ultra in Battlefield3. Even on P95 temps never went over 24c. I have a Corsair Hydro H70 liquid contained cooler. Is this normal for these new 95W CPU's?

  1. Are you gaming in a 10C room?
    What do you have measuring your temps?
  2. I'm in a basement, but probably 70 degrees down here. I have the HAF 932 case with 3 200mm fans, 1 120mm fan and the two 120mm fans on the corsair liquid cooled radiator. I was using coretemp and CPUID hardware monitor pro.
  3. Something is not right. I know you have your computer water cooled but unless you are playing in a freezer I doubt you computer is 24* C under load. If you haven't already download CPUID Hardware Monitor.
  4. 70C is about 21C. It doesn't seem likely to get just a 3C rise over ambient under full load.

    Try Real Temp or Core Temp and see what they say. I really dont think its running at 24 degrees under load.
  6. I have downloaded CPUID Hardware Monitor Pro. I know Coretemp doesnt recognize my CPU, only as AMD (ES) I guess is what it says.
  7. Realtemp is for Intel correct?
  8. What is your BIOS reporting?
    Does your motherboard have it's own health monitoring software?
  9. Yeah, I have the ASROCK 990FX Extreme4. But you can only check that on boot up correct?
  10. Best answer
    ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility (AXTU) is a software package that should let you read health monitoring data while in Windows.
    Check the CD you got with the motherboard.
  11. ok, I may have overlooked that on install. I will check back with you guys.

    Yes ignore that I copied and pasted that from another thread I posted in for an overclocked I5 2500k.
  13. ok, so it was running at a 40-41c in the ASRock utility. It seems the other programs haven't updated with the new CPU's im guessing.

  15. I think that's a good guess
    And the Asrock utility is reporting along the lines of what I'd expect from that type of cooling setup.
  16. yeah. I was thinking the same. sure is nice to still have 10c more in headroom to overclock if I wanted. right now i'm running stable @4.44ghz and only hit 51c.

    Edit: that mentioned heat temp above was running prime95. no game in the world is gona run 100% of each core all the time. I bet I can hit 4.8ghz
