Ok so I have a 3930k amd a hyper 212 EVO..... I idle at around 32C (88F) should this be cooler? Its not much higher then room temperature. When I was playing borderlands 2, it wasnt all that taxing on my cpu and temps went up to 55-60C range. Is this normal for this cpu/cooler?

I know the hyper 212 is not ideal for my cpu but I got it for $200 (dont ask) and was never planing to OC

Your temps are completely normal, nothing to worry about.

If you're idling around 40-50C and load around 80-100C, then you should start to worry.

@mocchan hi dude....i have cpu temp 40-50C and sometimes above 50 at idle....I have never checked it after gaming....does it sound dangerous to my system? my processor is amd a6-3650 and i have a cpu fan which came with the processor....don't think it's a branded one....can you explain why my cpu is so hot...??

Next time, please start your own thread or PM me :)  it would benefit other people, especially if they have the same problem as you!

But to answer your question, yes, it is quite dangerous to be running those temperatures on an A6-3650 chip. AMD's are known to run cool, and I mean VERY cool on the stock coolers.

Is your room hot? Is your cooler/case filled with dust? How is the airflow in your case? Also, is the cooler secured correctly? Lastly, did you remove your cooler and reapply it with the old thermal compound?

I think my room's hot....but my case is not filled with dust,i'm sure....and,i don't have a chassis fan...but my cpu is very new.i bought it in less than a month...should i remove the cooler and reapply some sort of things....???

now,while i'm browsing the net,cpu temp is 43-45C...less than 48C....is it fine...?? And a friend of mine has the same problem too....he has an fx-6100 with coolermaster cpu fan...still,his temperatures while gaming are 60-65C..... in comparison to that,is my temp. dangerous...??

And mocchan,I'm new to this site and new even to forums...so I don't know exactly what to do....Next time,I'll try to do as you told me..... :)

43-45C would be within reasonable temperatures, I wouldn't be too concerned about it.

However, your warm room is probably having to do with your warm CPU :)

Ok....thanks....I'm going for a chassis fan too....and dude,can you explain why that fx-6100 is overheating....???

High voltage (this can happen from time to time even if you don't overclock), dust build-up, bad heatsink install...a lot of things can make your CPU overheat.

Download CPU-Z and check what yours and your friends voltages are. If your voltages seem fine, then I would move onto insufficient airflow and/or bad heatsink install.

I have ASUS AI suite installed..It says,in my system,
Vcore-1.024 V
+12V - 12.221V
+5V - 5.156V
+3.3V - 3.328V
So everything's fine...??
