Is 55C a safe temp for AMD FX 4100 under load? Tags: CPUs Battlefield AMD Last response: September 16, 2012 3:12 AM in CPUs Share bingaloman September 16, 2012 2:22:44 AM On idle my CPU (FX-4100) is at about 40-45C. Under load it goes up to about 50-55C in like BF3 and such. Is that a safe temperature for the CPU to be at or around?

Once you nail down the worst-case scenario temps, then you don't have to worry if one program or another will make your CPU too hot. | Report abuse bingaloman September 16, 2012 3:12:49 AM Z1NONLY said:55C is fine, but I would check the max temp with a synthetic bench like prime 95 or intel burn test.

Ok thanks for the info, and would you happent o know, if when applying thermal paste, if I apply too much does that raise temps or does adding too much thermal paste not affect the CPU temps? | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Is 55C a safe temp for AMD FX 4100 under load?> Related ressources: ForumFX -4170 Full Load Temp Question ForumAMD FX 4100 ForumHow to air OC an AMD FX-4100 ForumAMD Bulldozer FX 4100 Throttling !
