hello I have the

AMD FX-9370 Vishera 4.4GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Eight-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition FD9370FHHKWOX with Liquid Cooling Kit

from newegg... i loaded up the sims 3 today ran it for 10 mins and my cpu hit 55 degrees centigrate... it popped up a warning saying CPU at 55 centigrate shut down applications... I should not be having this issue as i've had this rig less than a month... my liquid cooling and fans are set to maximum... my core is not overclocked... atleast not any more than it was when i bought the thing...  also i've ran much more graphicaly intense games before and not had this issue...  is it a defenctive cooling unit?.. its the one that came with it...

any advice on this would be greatly apreciated

I'm thinking "IT" should be warning you at 65 not 55.

So.. when you say "IT" popped up, what is "IT"? Is that something from a utility monitoring the system or something from the BIOS or ???

Look for "IT"'s settings and raise it to 65c or so.

I don't think that it's a cooling pump issue because it would spike up quickly if it were going out. My guess would be a clogged radiator (dust), improper installation, or a faulty thermal sensor.

The FX-8000 series has a 24/6 max operating CORE temp of 61C so 55C is too low for the FX-9000 series which is at least 61C and possibly higher. AMD's website doesn't seem to list most FX processor max temps but 61C is 100% safe and possibly higher on the FX-9000 series.

The FX-9000 series will always run towards the max 24/7 temp because it's just an overclocked FX-8000 series CPU. In addition the FX processors have over-temp protection so if the CPU gets to 70C it will start throttling itself to try and prevent any higher temps.

I'd use Core Temp to see what the real temp is. If it's less than 61C under heavy loads you're fine.

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

CPUs don't post warnings but your mobo BIOS might.

well... you were sort of on the right track... :S i derped big time... my radiator for the liquid cooling requres a fan on either side of it... well i knew that and put one on either side... but... i forgot to check which direction the fans were blowing... ( this being my first time ever building a pc on my own) guess what... one fan was blowing out of the case correctly... the other on the inside of the case was blowing inwards... so they were fighting over airflow.. lol whoops

55 in Coretemp is OK. The problem must be different issue. Whats your motherboard? Take hand at VRM of motherboard, if is it not overheating...Cheap motherboards are not for FX-8xxx OC or for FX-9xxx. I recomending M5A99X EVO at least, better Asus Sabertooth 990FX or Asus Crosshair V Formula-z

Yeah that would definitely cause a H2O system to run hot...

Hope that switching the fan direction fixes the issue.
