Hey, i hust recived my new amd fx 8350, mounted on a ga 990fxa ud3 motherboard with the corsair h100 cooler.
When i run crysis 2 on max settings (hardcore, 1080p) the CPU temp goes to 55ºC but their cores stay at 40ºC all the time, anyways the cpu load when playing stays at 40 - 50%
Which temp is the real cpu temp?
i'm so confused
here some pics about it:
A bit high for a water cooler , but well within safe limits . Gaming BF3 with my x6 temps hit 62-63 with the stock cooler , i get better with my 8350 running @100% cpu use all cores 44-46c with a cheap Deepcool mc3002gx .
Maybe re install the cooler , paste not put on properly ? Figure water cooler should be low 40's .
took a pic of a new FX 8350 stock cooler and an old opteron cooler , not only do the old coolers have better bigger fans , but the cooler itself is larger , no wonder the new cpu run hot
old opteron on the right fx left
bigger better opteron athlon fan on right , new smaller louder cheaper fx fan on left

But i don't know which temp i have to pay attemption, cpu temp or core temp.
I played battlefield 3 ultra, crysis 2 max settings... core temps stay at 35 - 40ºC or even lower...
