Configuration:
CPU: Phenom II X4 955 BE
MB: Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P
RAM: Corsair 4G DDR3
CPU cooling Arctic cooling Freezer 64 Pro PWM
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-620HX
No overclocking !
Excellent airflow in the case.

Temp measured with Core Temp, stress testing with prime 95.
Idle:33c
100%load: 60c (stopped the test at 60 ... i guess it would have reached higher)
I have tried the stock cooler and the A.C. cooler from the recommendations in this forum. Applied thermal paste A.C. MX-2 several times (properly ). And this is the best result achieved.

Seriously the stock cooler MUST be able to cool the cpu at 100% load.
Very annoyed ... ordering the Athlon II X2 now.

Have a good day everybody and sorry for the rant.

Added extra intake fan.
In total: 2 x 12 cm exhaust, 1 x 12 cm intake.
Temperature at full load stabilized at 56 c.
Room temperature 27 C / 80 F.
Cooling: Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro PWM.

That's better and that Phenom is unbelievably fast ... Enough tweaking for today


Bye everyone

PS: The lesson is ... remove every panel of the case if temp drops then you've got bad air circulation in the case (a blinding flash of the obvious ).


PS2: This CPU is REALY, REALY fast ... i mean WOW.

Still high temperature increase IMHO
If you do not plan overclocking - check your voltage - your MB sometimes set it too high for CPU
Mine are 29 Idle 46-47 Load
Cooler Scythe Ninja Mini
Case Lian Li V350 (SFF)
