Hi I was wondering if these were the best temps possible on air, or if I should buy the hyper 212 evo (Have the Hyper Tx3 in push pull.)

I used AMD Overdrive for this test but I'm going to change the multiplier and voltage in the bios, will that change the temps vs. these with overdrive ?

Something is WAY wrong there. You have a 1.4+ VID, 40C at 100% and 1C at idle?!?! 1C is JUST above freezing. Are you in an igloo? If not I think something is wrong and would go back to stock settings and find out why your temps arnt being reported correctly.

Unless myself and countless others around the internet just have defunct hardware these temps are right, ambient temp in the room is 65.6 (F) and I can touch this proc at idle (well on top of the tx3's cpu plate and it's cool to the touch.)

Ok so check this out. We all know that the way standard Water OR air cooling works is by pulling heat from the hot component (CPU, GPU, RAM ect) by some form of heatsink and then transferring that heat to the air around the fins or radiator via fans. Therefore the components that are being cooled will never be colder than the ambient temperature around the heatsink/rad. If your ambient temp is 65F/18C then that ABSOLUTE coldest temps that you should see reported on your system is 65F/18C and even that is almost impossible to achieve without some form of refrigeration. You are seeing 1 C at idle. That is just above 33F. Its is litter ally not possible unless your using some kind of refrigeration, dry ice, Liquid Nitrogen or some other super cold stuff.

Please link me to anyone else that are getting the kind of temps you are seeing.

TRUST me. Those temps you are seeing are wildly inaccurate. Im just saying cuz I would hate to hear someone kill there system by pushing it to hard. Do yourself a solid. Write down the settings you have now so you can go back to them later if you want. Reset you settings and ask on a couple of other forums where the members are more active.

8 GB Gskill RipJaws X 1600 Mhz @ 1866
MSI A55M-P33



you can look through the other reviews here the top one as of now ha a guys getting 4-6c

In conclusion though, what seems to be the case is that the idle temp on all of these (it seems) are wrong in windows but my temp in the bios is 21c

21c seems much more plausible

but also keep in mind that if the idle temp is being reported incorrectly then odds are so are the load temps as well...
