    hi guys!

    can someone help me?

    i'm using fx8350 with evercool buffalo on M5a97 evo R2.0, inside a CM 690 II Basic, 2 fans on top exausting, 1 rear fan exausting and 1 fan on the side intaking air

    my temps are:

    IDLE: 35ºC - 40ºC

    Gaming (GTA V most of time) - 62ºC - 65°C

    i know, buffalo isnt the best cooler for that job
    but should i be worried about this temps?

    I forgot
    That's nothing at all.

    The max temp listed for your CPU is 80c-90c (can't find anything specific for some reason), 60-65c is practically the ideal temps you want while under load. If it gets to something like 70c-75c, then you might want to worry. But now you're completely fine.

    I don't think you should be worried, but your temperatures could be better.
    That CPU underclocks automatically to protect from overtemperature, and it starts doing so after 62°C, so if you see things start going choppy, you should think of getting some better cooler because of performance.
    But it shouldn't break, so don't worry.
    I wouldn't worry too much if it is under 70°C.

    The Scythe Mugen 4 PCGH edition is a good one if you are really thinking of replacing your CPU cooler.

    Otherwise you can start with renewing the thermal/cooling paste or/and add an extra intake fan at the front/side?

    The temps are fine, he's nowhere near overheating so he doesn't have to invest in a new cooler. By the way, speaking from experience here, adding a huge amount of fans doesn't help ventilate the case, they have to be put on the right areas to create "air tunnels", so to speak. Before doing that you should handle cable management first to create sufficient space for air flow, otherwise it's all for naught.
