Not a lot, it depends - if you load up Winki 3 (the Linux OS on most MSI boards) it probably goes up to 30%, but on their regular Click BIOS, probably anywhere between 0-10% - it's not very demanding.

Huh, I heard somewhere else, it was actually a fairly heavy load, although no percentages. My fx 6200 gets 42C in bios, and I'm concerned that might be a little high for only a 10% load....So if I'm idling at 42C, what kind of temp do you think I'd get at 80%? : /

Well if you're using a stock cooler or an ehhh air cooler, that isn't too bad, and if you're overclocked, that's not bad either. The BIOS usually has most CPUs around that temp. At 80%, it probably would kick up to 50 C or higher, it really depends on your processor's clockspeed & what cooler you're using - the 6200 wasn't the best because besides having ehhh performance, it also ran pretty hot with a stock cooler.

Alright, thanks man! I'm glad its not too bad....I thought I was a good 8-10C too high xD I didn't want to have to reseat the fan and buy thermal paste to apply, because that would be kind of a pain.

And yeah, Ik the 6200 isn't a great cpu, but I got it for like 100 bucks so I figured I couldn't really go wrong getting it 40 dollars off.
