    Idle im at 9c to 14c..while gaming, the highest I have seen it is 58c. Is this okay? I plan on buying an aftermarket cpu cooler such as the ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2. but I was going to wait, should I get it sooner then later?

    CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo would be better....

    What are you using to view your temps? That 9c to 14c can't be right.

    It's OK, you'll need a better cooler though if you intend to overclock.

    That will be the core temp reading which doesn't register correctly until about 40c.

    I've been wondering about that. So when I get back on my 8350 I need to make some adjustments and keep an eye on that temp then? Sorry OP, not trying to hijack your thread. :nerd:

    Definitely needs to be a sticky.

    As for the thread get a better cooler and make sure you have proper airflow. My zalman 9500 has kept a 6300 below 50C in a case with only an intake and exhaust 120mm fan. My 8320 is on a 212 EVO at 1.392v and during games has never passed 47C

    I second the mention of the Hyper 212 EVO. Great cooler & easy to work with. The fan on it might block 1 or 2 of your closest memory slots. If so, just detach the fan & mount it above your memory stick. Not the best for airflow, but I've seen lots of people take a stick out before they thought to move the fan.
    With the Hyper 212 EVO I rarely had a value above 50C.

    Well I just had another read of my OP and realized the quoted article is not very clear. Kinda like it's been translated from Chinese or martian or something.

    When I get a minute (read: cbf :p) I'll rewrite the info so it's easier for people to understand and maybe get it stickied.

    I think I posted something the other day about AMD temps...but it shud be done properly I guess since the subject always comes up...
