Fx 6200 idling at 39.5 degrees Celcius....

I just put my rig together and noticed the idle temp was pretty high compared to the 20 degrees Celcius other people have gotten. Is this bad? If so, how can I fix it?

    What HSF assembly do you have on it? Stock or aftermarket?

    Stock because I don't intend to do any overclocking at all, and because I don't have much money : /

    That's just a touch high according to what I have seen. Somewhere around 32-35C would be about normal and you have to consider the ambient temps as well. Plus the fx-6200 is a 125W CPU so there will be more heat with more power. Is your fan running at 100% in the BIOS?

    Really? Okay, its good to hear its not incredibly overheated....I saw some people talking about getting 17C, but they were probably using aftermarket cooling now that I think about it. I'm not sure about the fans either, so I'll have to check that. Anyways, thanks for the recommendation and for telling me what I should expect. It's my first build, so I've spent exorbitant amounts of time researching and fixing a noob mistake or two, and freaking out over really minor stuff XD

  6. Silicon isn't water, 40C is like icy cold to silicon.
    It would feel warm to our touch as our body temperature should be below that.

    Some people like extreme cooling, and 'extreme' warming their chips when their workload increases.
    - All this does it place additional thermal stress (expansion and contraction) on the processor.
