Tags: CPUs Cooling AMD Product Last response: November 1, 2012 3:33 PM in CPUs Share GTRSILENTX November 1, 2012 12:51:11 PM Hey guys I was thinking whether the AMD FX-8150's Stock cooler capable of keeping CPU cool like playing games like MOH Warfighter or Battlefield 3 or Metro 2033 or Crysis 2? If yes what max temp will it get? More about : amd 8150 stock cooler good Z1NONLY a b à CPUs a b À AMD November 1, 2012 2:29:49 PM At stock settings, yes. Max temp will be high 50's unless you have the rig in a hot room. Once you start overclocking the stock cooler is useless.

However, I don't recommend this course of action. If you plan to OC, get something like a CM Hyper 212 EVO. You just don't want to take chances with your CPU. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
