I was  just wandering what everyone thinks of my new system. I wanted a gaming computer. Is this good enough. So far it's playing all my  games on ultra or high settings. Although, it does seem to be running kinda hot.

If it runs hot, you probably have stock CPU cooler. What are other parts like PSU?

 

And usually it's good idea to ask about computer Before buying it :)

Also, what are you considering "hot."   The maximum end of the allowed operating temperature (not the critical temperature where things get throttled) is 61.1° C.  50° C is nowhere near to "hot" for this particular processor, and that's the only temperature data you've offered.

 

It's always worth checking out the specs for a given processor before declaring that a given machine is "running hot" particularly when under a heavy load.  The cpuboss.com and cpu-world.com websites generally have the operating range temperature specs for most processors if you can't easily find them at the manufacturer's own website for a given processor (and for this particular FX model I couldn't).

According to the specs that I provided I just thought it was running a little hot @45C. Thanks for the input guys

I like the system though not sure about pairing the 8 core FX 8320 with a 4.1 power phase 760g mobo that lacks mosfet cooling. However, FX 8320 with base clock of 3.5 GHZ should run ok with the stock heat sink fan. If those temps are at idle (45-50c) then yes even with the stock provided heat sink fan it's a bit hot. I mean the fan itself is capable it's just loud when it ramps up RPM's. I suppose the question is are you having any issues with temps when gaming or any erratic behavior? If not I would say you are ok but again those temps are not great for idle states you should be getting more like 35-39c or so idle. Was this a self built unit? Also do you have turbo boost enabled within the bios of your motherboard?

FWIW:  I have a FX8320 and initially my idle temp would be in the 45 Celsius range.  I bought several different heatsink/fans and then decided that it was too much work to replace the stock cooler.  I removed the heatsink/fan...clean it patiently, put new thermal grease on...idle temps dropped to 35-38 Celsius range.

 

As stated the noise was the biggest irritant, system never blinked, even when temps reached 70s when rendering some video files.

 

I would just remove the paste applied with the stock...clean everything...apply new grease and see if it improves.

 

Interesting, Varying Opinions

45C is just mildly warm, not considered 'hot' until above 75-80C.....
