Hello,
Hello,
I recently bought a FX 8350, I used to run it with the boxed cooler. Now I exchanged the cooler and for the first time looked at the temperatures.

My FX 8350 with an Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev.A goes up to 62,5°C in Prime95. It's the highest it goes, this runs at stock speed.

At complete idle it's 35°C, while surfing etc. it's around 39-40°C.

I already reapplied the thermal paste.
Are those temperatures just normal with that CPU, even with that cooler?

your temps look fine. my cpu idles at 32c and loads at 79c (with 4.8 overclock) using h100

Thanks for the fast answer!

Would it be worth it getting a H100, just for stock (maybe a little overclock), or would that be a waste of money?

water coolers give you lower load temps so they really benefit you if you like to overclock
if you want to do a mild overclock air coolers will do fine and they are a little cheaper as h100 is $100 and you can get a nice air cooler for $50

I'm already using a Thermalright HR-02 Macho Rev.A as cooler. :p 

But thanks for your help! :)
