AMD Deneb 955 (C3) Black Edition @ 3.2GHz
Is 59°C @ load too high?
When you say load do you mean full load? Like a burn test?
59c is a reasonable temperature.
Is that with the stock cooler?
Nope, not at all
Stock cooler, load = Crysis 2
Crysis 2 doesn't load the CPU much, it mainly loads the GPU. You know, it's a game, it's got graphics - so it stresses the graphics card.
Try stressing the CPU with Prime95 large fft's
Running Handbrake, encoding videos, it goes upto 60°C
We know that is a CPU-intensive task.
59/60 is pretty normal tbh on stock cooler. You should start worrying when you have 60 idle temp.
My 945 idle temp is 30, didn't measure my load temp properly since i last cleaned the CPU. Before cleaning, the idle temp is around 65ish and load temp is 90.
He idles around 30°C-35°C and loads at 58°C-60°C
^ its fine. Problem solved as there never was a problem to begin with Its better to be safe than sorry though, and now you know you're gtg.
Near about 90 C is very risky for your laptop,i think ideal temperature should be near abt 60Cso you should use cooling fan system below your laptop,it will help you to mantain temperature.
I don't own a laptop, nor have I ever owned a laptop.
Some boards overvolt CPU, and then, they have higher temps. 960t on stock cooler, overvolted by motherboard (auto) goes up to 70c, it works 2 years now, i guess it's fine. On stock cooler ofc.
You can try to downvolt CPU (but i would strongly advice not to do so if you play games), and that will lower your temps.
i thought 60c was on the high side for amd cpus?
^ 70 and up is danger zone for FX. He is towards the higher end of the scale, but nothing to worry about. He said he was maxing load at around 59. I load at those temps myself
Its all about the ambient temps chaps, aircooling temps are directly related to the ambient air temperature so if that goes up then the CPU temp will rise. A load temp of 60c in a warm house is better than 60c in a cold house. So whilst the CPU may be stable enough in winter, once we hit the summer it may start to enter the danger zone. Even watercooling is effected in the same way although testing on my three WCed rigs shows temp changes dependant on the ambient although they do not rise proportionately.
60 is on high side i guess, but point was, it works 2 years without problem, with possibly higher temperature at summer.
