Brand New X4 955 Way Too Hot.

For a quick comparison i have my 930 @ 4.2, 1.325v, LLC level 2, Air Cooled, hits 70+ under stress tests but in games around 50/60 degrees. I removed the graphics card and let the motherboard use the built in one, but the PC kept suddenly powering off at random times. This computer was built by a friend of mine probably about 2-3 yrs ago and it's been running great. Idle: 41-46c depending on room temp. http://lebos.org/brand-new/brand-new-machine-with-brand-new-problems.php

I bought an E6300 for under $200 when they were brand new and overclocked it over 50% of it's stock clock speed (2.8 from 1.86GHz). mmstick09-13-2010, 12:26 AMThe Phenom II X6 1055T and 1090T overclocks well for only $200. I do agree that the temps are highI need to do a heat sink reseat. I got into the mod 50s with that coolerLooks like you may be able to get a bit more speed out of the cpu fan as well(this may help drop the

Pay close attention to the measurements of the Hyper 212+ (or any cooler) and make sure it will fit in your case.

I spent some days researching, and decided to remove the possibility of a virus. In some cases this is a very tight setup. its been mentioned before that Intel code being run on AMD CPU's will cause the benchmarks to be lower for AMD vs Intel, if the code isnt optimized for either CPU Re-check your mainboard manual and all PSU connections to your mainboard to be sure that nothing is missing (e.g. 12V ATX 4-pin/6-pin connector).

angrytigerp04-02-2011, 02:16 AMMy CPU runs right around 60c during games, and goes to 63c sometimes in BC2 I believe. Gotta go aftermarket.

We obviously shouldn’t expect Phenom II X4 processor family to speed up any further, at least until new Deneb core stepping comes out (which we have no information of so far). http://www.notebookreview.com/desktopreview/amd-phenom-ii-x4-955-black-edition-review/ Puff3rDec 9, 2011, 7:34 AM I also have a 955 BE. will try AF resit again but fast running out of thermal paste! –liam Apr 10 '12 at 20:42 remember...

Use the lowest stable voltage you can for your desired clock speed.It seems you may also have too much intake fan and not enough exhaust. So same speed for 1/5th the cost.

It's a common error, and if your computer has been acting up since you built it, this is a likely cause.

Combining that with the 120mm fan that used to be on the front of my case (a HAF 912, replaced the front fan with the 200mm), I now have a push-pull My ram is rather close to the CPU, but I don't use heat-spreaders. Point is it only goes up to 60c+ when my heat is on in the room ever. My front intake can get upgraded to 140mm too, which I'm going to do sometime.

From what you say, and the 10 degree difference you describe between idle and load, I believe that the AMD software and the motherboard are doing their job, both in underclocking It was in bad shape. It’s worth noting at this point that while the new AM3 processors are backwards compatible with AM2+ motherboards, those AM2 chips are not forward-compatible with AM3 sockets.
