Phenom II 955 high temps?

hi
I am playing GTA IV on highest settings (1280x1024) and my temps reach 59 c with the stock fan spinning at 5700 rpm
so is this normal or I need an aftermarket cooler
so this is my rig
cpu: phenom II 955 (underclocked to 2.5 ghz to decrease temp and 78 Watt and 1.33 voltage)
gpu:msi radeon 5770 1gb
mobo:msi 880gm-e41
note:using zp thermal compound (accidentally had a problem with stock thermal paste so had to remove it)

    NO!
  3. You should most likely get an aftermarket cooler, 59C is NOT OK with a stock cooler. 62C is the rated max temp on the 955BE. Get a new cooler before your stuff dies!
  4. It's fine.
  5. i was considering that too to get an aftermarket cooler to keep the temps more lower but did it.
    59c is not so bad.
  6. An after market cooler would be a good investment for you i run a Cooler Master Hyper TX3 with a phenom II X4 945, I never go above 35 degrees even though mines a step below yours I recommend the same cooler for you!

  7. well the room temp is currently 27 so how much will an after market cooler help
  8. Probably drop your temps 20-30C!
  9. can you please give me an advise on some good coolers (not more than 25$)
  10. Hyper 212+
  11. can it fit in my rig
  12. is there a big difference between hyper 212+ and Cooler Master Hyper TX3
  13. and can my msi 880gm-e41 run it

    The max temp is 62C

    The maximum temperature specified on that page is conservative. I've had my computer for 3 years and until recently I was reaching 65C+ until I blew my case out and undervolted my processor.

    I know AMD rates their processors a bit low in temps, however 59C is NOT ok with the stock cooler.
  16. thank you very much for your replies, but can you please tell me if hyper 212+ or Cooler Master Hyper TX3 can run in my motherboard
  17. Yes, what case though?
  18. well I actually don't know but the dimensions are 16.5" x 6.3" x 15.7"
  19. in centimeters 42" x 17" x 40"
