Hey guys, got yet another question. I recently just purchased a new computer, all specs are available on my profile, and I love it. However there is one thing that has very recently come to my attention. My 8150's temps are getting way too high. It usually idles around 25C-31C, but when I start playing a game (BF3 for instance) temps shoot up to around 65C-70C. I didn't think that this was a big deal considering CoreTemp told me that my Max was 90C, but then I looked up the max on AMD and it says that it shouldn't go over 61C, which is kind of scary because even when running minecraft (yes I know it runs mostly off of the processor) CoreTemp tells me that my processor is at 67C. I also have AI Suite 2 and it also tells me the same temps. I even have water cooling, pretty low end water cooling, but still water cooling. So my question is.. why are my temps so high? What can I do to fix it?
Just in case you don't want to look at my profile my specs are:
Processor: AMD FX-8150 3.60 GHz Eight-Core AM3+ CPU 8MB L2 Cache & Turbo Core Technology
Cooling: Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan
I also have one 120MM fan in the top of my case, and a powerful deskfan sitting on top (both as intake)
AMD 8150 Max Temps Discussion
Can't find any links with AMD 8150 Specs that include max operating temp...
P.S. 2 more things... 1. I won't be able to post any screenshots for about 30mins or about 10:30 AM EST
2. When I am not running even a single application my number of processes is usually in the 80's (only using 0%- 7% of CPU though)
Thanks in advance!
*EDIT* Temps while playing minecraft are 37C-45C
