Hello everyone :D

Today I got my brand new FX-8350 in the mail!
Install went smoothly. I am using the CM Hyper 212 Evo cooler (With push-pull, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6835553001) and the thermal paste that comes with it (Yes yes I know, but I ran out of my other stuff :P)

The temps are really bothering me though:

Min Max Average
Core0 25.88| 55.12| 44.29
Core1 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
Core2 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
Core3 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
Core4 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
Core5 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
Core6 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
Core7 25.88| 55.12| 44.31
TMPIN0 47.00| 64.00| 54.60

As of this moment I am sitting "idle" at 25.38/42.00.

Is it just me or are these temps kinda high?

BTW: I used a pea sized drop of thermal and spread a thin layer across the entire CPU with a dry paper towel.

I think it's a little warm, but I don't know. However the first fault is you spread it with a paper towel. You're supposed to either spread it with a credit card or similar or with your finger in saran wrap. Paper towels aren't exactly "lint free" material.

Yea I thought of that right after I did it :oops:

But would that really bump the temps that high? I want to make this thing a little cooler, so I can run a slight OC

I don't know, but I would reapply the thermal grease.

and get some of 'the good stuff' when you decide to redo the TIM. Why take it apart twice for the same thing.

do you really need to spread it? I just put the drop on and attach the heatsink.

It doesn't matter, really. But for ease of application, put a drop it, put heastink in, twist slightly back and forth to spread, then secure.

I absolutely concur. Reinstall with quality paste and properly apply with credit card. I ordered the good stuff along with my new chip, I'm sure place you got your chip from sells it. Good luck.
