Originally posted by: rubyy Hey guys, I need one last help. I changed the pc to another room and playing and giving heavy load I have found that reaches a maximum temperature of 56 º Celsius.

You guys you think that the heatsink is defective and must return or change for the better or simply logical that the processor reach those temperatures? I await your response. Thank you very much
No the heatsink isn't defective. If you read the many FX threads here on temps you'll see these 8-core CPUs run hotter than 4 or 6 core CPUs - as you would expect with more cores. 56C under max load is perfectly fine as AMD says you can run at up to 61C for 24/7 use. Different CPUs with different hardware can run at slightly different temps. Your CPU/heatsink are running perfectly normal.
Enjoy! There is nothing wrong with your hardware or temps with anything below 61C under full load operation.
Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
