Okay so I purchased and built a whole new computer. I am running the FX-8150 on an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX mobo, with the Hyper 212 EVO heatsink. These are my temperatures [SEE BELOW], are they okay? My phenom ran idle on the Hyper 212+ at 23C and maxed at 45C under Prime95 for 30 minutes. I'm a little worried about these temperatures.

Please bare in mind I am in a pretty hot room due to it being padded and sound proof for music and it's my office, I do have audio engineers who come in to my recording studio and work in the booths/main and I'd rather not hear the sound from there, so my walls are padded, a long with theirs.

- Room Temp. 27C (80F)

- Idle: 45C (113F)

- Prime95 10 minutes: 57C (135F)

I really hope I don't need to re-seat this thing..... I have to remove 32GB of RAM and this case is so dang heavy, and it's just hard to do once it's in the case.... :(  lol

Computer Specs:
FX-8150 [Stock, no overclocking]
32GB Ripjaw Z RAM
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
EVGA GTX 690 [Upgraded from 670, got this baby for $500]
Corsair HX750 Watt
ASUS Blu-Ray
2 256GB SanDisk SSD
2 VelociRaptor 1TB
2 WD Black Caviar 2TB

The case is an NZXT Phantom and my fans are as follows: 1 top 200MM (Outtake), 1 back 120MM (Outtake), 2 side 120MM (Intake by harddrives), Front 140MM (Intake, this one doesn't do much) [I want to add a 200MM side fan, but the Hyper 212 EVO doesn't allow enough room]

Thank you to any and all who answer or help me!!!!!

Those temps look fine to me. Maybe if you could crank the fans up a bit you could get it down to 55 at load, but as long as it doesn't tip 60, it will be fine.

Awesome, thank you! I knew it was never supposed to exceed 61, as I've read online from quite a few places. Will keep an eye on it, thanks again!

61C was more phenom II, the Bulldozers are better with heat... around 70C is more where you want to stop
