I finally got my Phenom II X4 installed (upgraded from an Athlon Dual Core) after a LOT of swearing over getting the stock heatsink clipped into place (with stock thermal compound). I eventually had to use a LOT of force to get it to clip into place.

Anyway, looking at CPUID Hardware Monitor, I see that my CPU is sitting at an Avg of 39°C and a max temperature of 43°C. Are those okay temps?


And while playing GTA 4 the fan got extremely loud, and my temp shot up to 62°C!

Will my CPU survive at those temps, or should I invest in aftermarket thermal compound and an aftermarket cpu cooler?

Those temperatures are perfectly fine. The fan speed speeds up when the temperature gets warmer which is normal.

What's the absolute highest temperature I should let it get to? Running Prime 95 got it up to almost 70.

Just don't let it go over to 90C and 70C at 100% cpu usage is also not a concern.

Phew! I was surprised that AMD's stock cooler was so loud! My old Athlon was dead silent. Ran Prime95 for about 10 minutes and got it up to 71 Celcius.

I'll re-do the thermal compound later, because while I was trying to mount the heatsink, I had to take it off and turn it around.

Thanks much!

Those are good temps, my Phenom II X4 955 hovers around the mid 40's under load with the stock cooler, then again, I have four 120 mm fans in my case.. The Phenom II X4 955 is rated at 62 degrees celsius. If the CPU gets too hot, it throttles down and eventually shuts off if it gets too hot.

Is your stock cooler's fan loud as hell like mine is?

Yeah, it is loud, but I'm holding off until the new Bulldozers come out, at which point, I'm getting the XIGMATEK HDT-S1284F 120mm HYPRO. I know I could get a better one, but I don't want to pull the motherboard out of the case to install a backplate.

Zalman's seem to be the gold standard for CPU coolers.

There are, but I don't want to remove the motherboard to screw on a backplate. So, I need something that uses AMD's bracket, which is a PITA to use. That CPU cooler was chosen not just because of the cooling ability, but also noise.

And that is why you should have a case that has access to the back of the motherboard section :P

...I do. I have to remove the motherboard tray from the case to gain access, which means disconnecting all of the cables. It's a hassle I don't like dealing with, hence, I'm going with something that can use AMD's cooling bracket.

It makes it easy to pull the motherboard for upgrades, but if I need to access the bottom of the mobo, I have to pull it all the way out, or risk bending the motherboard tray or board itself.
