I was just curious what the max temperature should be for my AMD FX-8350 ? I was told about 63c, which it is usually about 60 while gaming at 75% or lower fan speed. but what about when i try to render a video ? it's hit as high as 73 degrees, would that be safe ? i've also done it more then once, and nothing has seemed to happen, no throttling or anything. i am also using the stock cpu fan that comes with it.

Download Coretemp, it should tell you the TJmax, which is the maximum temperature the cores can operate till

thank you ! i downloaded it, and the TJMax was 80°c, hopefully the program is completely accurate

What's odd to me is this suggests it's 90 :S

If you get worried, you could always get an aftermarket cooler :D  (or reduce overclock if you already have one)


no overclock, but i'm working on getting an aftermarket cooler, the cooler master hyper 212 evo, and a few corsair air series sp120's. but for the moment i'm stuck with the stock fan.

although i do think that CoreTemp is giving me false temperatures. According to MSI Control Centre my cpu temperature is currently idling at 50°c, but CoreTemp is giving me 30°c

That would probably be messier lols, CPU temp is shown hotter in bios readings, possibly due to some load

well in bios the last time i was adjusting settings, it was about 60°c under the load, and when i'm putting load on it, while playing a game or such, it's about that. anyway. thanks for all the help :D

You could put those worries to rest once you get your hands on that cooler :D

yeah i know, i'm just a little worried is all, because i just recently built this pc, still in the process of building it. and i don't want to have to rebuy the CPU again.

Since gaming doesn't make it go under a full load like prime95 or some other heavy stuff, you can play games without a worry hehe :)
