Normal. AMD CPUs do not report the correct temperature under 40°C.
Butfor the degrees with old games? How possible old games have 49°-50° degrees?
Hey, are you using the stock cooler? i also have an FX8350 and the cpu doens't heat that much... Why don't you install an monitoring software like Hwinfo64, there you will find the temp measured on the cpu itself and also the temp measured by your Asrock mobo on socket, you will see that both temps have very similar values.. If they arent then you can have a problem.
It does not fit the program I made screenshots? The program's name is called "HWMonitor".
the programs are very similar but i like more hwinfo 64 because it gives more readings and also gives the correct sensor name, instead of something like tmpin0.
but even on hwmonitor you should be able to compare the information writen on motherboard sensor tab and the info on the cpu temp sensor tab..they should be very similar, 2 readings from 2 difrnt sensors
In those screenshots you did you may not check there are these sensors? (They are on the first post, above).
The links do not open for me but the CPU temp is a function of load, ambient temp, airflow thru the case and cooler thermal capacity. AMD specifies 61C as the max user temp for the FX-8350 so 43C is no problem at all.
i think most of the above are correct
However Airflow can be a real killer in any case.
If you have "under" or "over" pressure, it can get very hot, very fast.
Also the standard settings will manage the fan speed to keep a balance between noise and cooling need. So it could be that even under full load the temperature wont rise much, but the RPM's will (of the fan).
Also it would be nice to know what cooler you are using at the moment.
Even though i just use an FX-6300 , even with OC it hardly ever exceeds the 47C under long stress tests (corsair Hydro, closed LC), even with ambient temperatures up to 28C/82.4F.
Should you be concerned, try opening your case, and run a small stress test.
If the temperature does not rise to high levels , then your airflow is bad, and you should re-organize the fans/cables etc.
However if the CPU temp rises regardless , please check if the cpu cooler is well attached and try to apply some new thermal compound.
But please take note, that the stock cooler is sufficient , however if you need lower temps , you will need more
And like i said before , i totally agree with the others on the temp sensors @ low temps......
Please never forget to do the simple checklist
3) Airflow (even with LC its important)
4) Cables (they can work like insulation if wrongfully situated)
5) Ambient temperature @20c your full load might be 41-50C @30c it may increase more towards 60c
Hope it helps you a bit, and for future posts please keep in mind to let others know what cooler is attached
