FX-8350 Over Clocking and Temps Question

Recommended Posts

Quick question, what temperatures should I expect this CPU to run at with no over clock and with a 4.5ghz over clock. Current speed is 4.1ghz with an Antec Kuhler 620 h20. I was having stability issues with the system so I moved to a very well ventelated case and added some Corsair SP120 fans in a push pull setup on the radiator. I'm currently getting idle temps between 35C and 40C and a very breif gaming session saw max temps reach 59.5C using open hardware monitor. Is my cooler not cutting it anymore? Its about 4 or 5 years old. Ambient is about 23-25C.


As an experiment I ordered a Cooler Master Hyper 612 v2 to try out for comparison, should get it this weekend. I just wanted to know what temps I should be seeing and if mine are normal. I suspect that my current AIO cooler might be on its way out.


Let me know if anyone needs more info to help.

If anything you want to go with a thicker 120 based cooler or a 240mm rad equipped all in one.
