More about 8150 heat
  1. The maximum operating temperature for a FX-8150 is 61°C -- it should not reach 68°C even if Turbo is turned on.

    What is your case?

    Perhaps you could get a after market cpu cooler like Hyper 212 EVO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103099
  2. Where are you getting that max operation temp number?

    If you do not need going beyond 3.6GHz, then why are you worried about?
