I bought a Phenom 995 BE from a friend and installed it with my corsair H50 and I was wondering what the idel and load temps are for the stock cooler on the 995? Can anyone help me. Currently with the H50 I amd gettin 40C idel and 47C load under Everest CPU stress test.

Thanks for the help guys.

Welcoime to the forum!!!!!

40C at idle is really high... I idel at 26-29C on air!!!! Something seems a little wierd there my friend..

The max temp for that CPU is 62C.. so really anything under that is good but for idle temps on water cooling you seem really high.. I would double check all the connections and make sure that you installed the H50 correctly..

I got rid of the H50 thermal paste and replaced it with some AS5. I got it to be 36C idel and 44C load. Not sure what else I can do.

try making the rad fan as an intake (sucking air into the case instead of exhasting out) to suck cool air in over it, also you could add another fan to the rad for a push pull set up which will reduce temps further

btw 995?? do you mean 9950BE or 955 BE big difference one is a phenom 2 the other is a phenom 'agena' which imo using the h50 on it would be a waste

Its a AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition. And the code name is agena acording to CPU-Z. Why would this cooler be a waste on this processor?

because it is an expensive cooler.. unless you wanted it for quiet operation.. is more geared at high end enthusiast/ overclocking. the agena core tops out at around 3.2ghz. still a good cooler is a good cooler and can carry on when one should upgrade

have you managed to reduce your temps at all yet?

what are your full system specs?

motherboards, psu GFX etc?

OH something i forgot to add..

on your motherboard you need to disable any type of fan control ie cool and quiet or Q-fan. the pump on the H50 requires full12v from the motherboard and if it isnt getting it it wont work properly

I have gotten my idel down to 36C and my stress test load to 44C w/new compund and a 1700rpm pull fan paired with the 1500rpm push fan. (I know they should be the same but its all I have rite now)

My System:

Haf 932
AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition
Asus M3A32 MVP Deluxe
8GB of Patriort DDR2 800mhz .4.4.4.12
Sapphire 4850x2
750w Antec Earthwatts PSU
LG DVD-RW
Lite-on Blu-ray Drive
160Gb HDD 7200rpm
2TB HDD 7200rpm
360GB HDD 7200rpm
Thermaltek slot cooler

Air flow setup:
I have a 230mm in the front sucking in and the 2 120mm on my H50 at the rear sucking in(one 1500rpm and the other 1700rpm. Then I have a 230mm on top and one on the side both exhausting. My PSU mounts on the bottom and pulls air in from the back and exhausts thru the bottom. Lastly I have a Thermaltek slot cooler exhausting the air above my 4850x2 video card.

I think thats everything. I am no expert on colling so if you think it is my airflo set up please make suggestions.

thats a massive difference!! good job.. cooling can take a while to get perfect but generally you want more blowing out of your case than you do want going in.. the negative pressure sucks cool air in anyway and the positive pressure blowing out gets rid of the warm air.. due to the H50 having a radiator it sends the 'normal' in from the front bottom out through the back/top, out the window as it is recommended to suck cool air in over the rad rather than blowing warm air out over it. but a drop in nearly 10 degrees is a clear success and now you dont really have anything to worry about and you can mess about with fan positions as and when you feel like it to find the best results

I also have the H50 and it's a pretty good cooler. I'm idling at 28c as I write this with OC'ing. I have the push/pull configuration for extra cooling. So far it tops out at about 42c under load/gaming.

So I flipped the radiator on my H50 so the hoses came out of the top and my temps at idel are now a solid 34C. Kinda strange but it worked.

Can anyone tell me what the AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition temps are at idel and load with the stock cooler that comes with the chip??

Also Rising Force what kind of cooling do you have in your case to get that cool 28C? The closest I can get is 33C with my fans all on high. You do have a different chip then me to which I suppose could run cooler then mine to begin with. The only reason I ask is because you and I have almost the same case. I have the HAF932.

Thanks

All my specs are in my sig. I have the push/pull set up on the rad and reversed the flow as suggested by Corsair. My 965 is the 140w version, doesn't get any hotter than that. I also have a clean case, all my cables are tucked away to improve airflow.
