My temps on my AMD FX - 6100 have increased a lot since I replaced my stock cooler with the CoolIT ECO A.L.C.
What would be better for keeping my CPU cool and giving me a little head room for a mild overclock later on the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo or something like the Corsair H60 or even something different?
Any and all suggestions/advice is welcome and appreciated.

What are idle and load temps with the CoolIT ECO A.L.C.?

Are you 100% sure your waterblock is firmly connected/mounted to the CPU? What thermal compound did you use?

It seems rather odd for a CLC to do worse than the OEM cooler.

For a reference, I put together a PC for my brother with the Hyper 212+ (not the evo) with an fx 6100 and an Antec P280 case. His load temps were 58C. This was a full time overclock of 4.2ghz on all cores. The paste the cooler came with was used.
Hopefully this info will help you make your decision better.

My idle temps are around 25 degrees and full load in prime95 topped at 48 with the CLC and with my stock cooler I was getting idle temps of 7 - 12 degrees and full load again with prime95 of 40 - 44.
The thermal paste is the pre-applied stuff that came with the CLC and its right up against my CPU.

Your temps are currently quite good. Unless your original temps were taken in a freezer, they could not be accurate. I suspect a sensor error that is no longer an issue. Your temps are good.

I know this thread is old, but I have an FX-6200 and the stock cooler idles me around 6-15c during the winter when my room is a little cool, and around 18-28c idling during the summer. Either AMD is tampering with something on purpose, or those are the true temperatures.

The CPU will never be cooler (in temperature) than the air temperature of the room (using an air cooler).
