playing BF3 for an hour, the hottest it got was 53C thats all 4 cores at 80+% ussage
Wow. Isn't 53 kind of high for AMD?

ok so whats the difference between turbo core ratio and max turbo core ratio?

my guess is that turbo core ratio will set turbo to that but it wont scale from base to turbo, and max turb it will allow scaling from base to max turbo so as long as turbo core ratio is set to auto?

But I think the maximum safe temperature for AMD's CPUs are still much lower than Intel's.

I'm not quite sure. I'm only replying so that you know I'm not ignoring this post.

well i huess ill figure it out later lol. the manuael probs has it in there

ive read on a forum that the cores should not go over 62c and cpu 70c


btw i can not change the fsb in bios..... it will not let me select anyting other than 200mhz. maybe its locked in the settings somewhere?

so increasing the cpu frequency WITHOUT increasing the voltage will NOT increase heat?

I know you say you're not overclocking but it sounds like you're getting very tempted to try and bump it that little bit.
You should leave it alone untill you get a psu that not gonna kill your NEW rig.

Exactly what I was thinking. There is no reason to rush into overclocking. Part of the fun is going slow, testing, tweaking, fine-tuning until you get it as perfect as you can. Doing research is fine, just wait until you have a better PSU before you make any changes.

it is when gaming for a hour im hitting high 30's or even low 40' s but he is using a stock cooler and fan so that is why if he used an aftermarket it would be much better

Yes it will. If the chip clocks faster it will pull more power. But without a small Vcore and maybe CPU/NB bump it may be real unstable.
If you're going to OC much, get an aftermarket cooler, AMD's is better than Intel's, but weak for OCing.
