Nonsense.
I have run Folding@Home 24/7/365 on nothing but stock OEM heatsinks and fans since 2004. The load on the CPU is typically 100% on all cores.
One example is my present AMD Athlon II X4 640. Even on the hottest and most humid summer days where the temp in the room has gone up to 35c, the CPU according to CoreTemp and HWMonitor has never gone above 55c.
You don't have an FX-8350. They get hot. I wouldn't run one at 100% for any length of time on a stock cooler. Most stock coolers are woefully underrated for anything other than casual use, in my experience.

Your Athlon is a 95W TDP processor, it's going to run cooler. The 8350 is a 125W TDP processor. That's a 30 Watt difference under moderate load. It makes a big difference.
yup on my stock cooler with just a 8120 before i had the 8350 it was not usable with my ambient temps and full load these chips put out a lot of heat, i had to go water it was not an option lol.

Cooling, cooling, cooling. Their are always so many question on cooling. Some basic I think one must follow.
1. You must have a case and case fans that will create the proper air flow. Whether air or water cooled cpu it must get air flow.
2. I know of no stock cpu cooler that I would trust.
You spend $300.00 on a cpu and another $300.00 on a motherboard that will cook if the cpu isn't cooled properly.
3. How much to spend.
A 130W cpu without any cooling will cook in 1 or 2 minutes and sometime less than that at idle doing work in the bios. That's how hot a cpu can get without cooling. I have seen it done.
Keeping that in mind how important is it to know you have the best and proper cooling you can afford. Never work a system harder that the cooling system can handle. To me that is a after market cooling system.(3rd party)
You can spend no extra money and use the cooler that came with the cpu and as long as you don't load the cpu very much the odds are you will be okay. Now if you are going to use high load programs whether you are over clocked or not you will need more cooling in most cases.
If you are going to over clock you will absolutely need a after market cooling system. You can spend $100.00 for a quality sealed water cooling system that most likely take care of most users needs. They also have some very high quality air coolers for cpu. You can also spend $300.00 and more for a build your own custom cooling system.

What ever your computer build budget is don't cut back on the cpu cooling. Save money in other areas but not on cooling. Their is no such thing as to much cooling.
A computer system is exactly that a system. To much heat will destroy the system.
Many have given some good suggestion and more will be given by others. If one has to save up a little more money for proper cooling then one must do that.
The only sealed water cooler I have used is a Corsair and does a great job on one of my computer if I don't over clock past its limits of the cooling. Watching temps is critical. The other one has a custom water cooling system and I can't make it get to hot. I have tried.
Cooling, cooling, cooling don't cheat your computer system.

I already mentioned water already with 8350 he should just get the 620 khuler with in budget and will do twice as good as a hyper 212 evo

Like Solarstarshines I have seen good reviews on the 620 khuler and at a later day one could always update the fans if need be.

Another decent closed loop cooler is the Corsair H80i, comes with two SP-based fans.

I use the corsair CORSAIR Hydro H55 and it works great. Its just a cpu cooler and its easy to install and use. Here is the case I use as well for great cooling:

To run a 8350 at 100% for 1 hour will take a minimum of a H80i and then the fans will need to run at max rpm, it will sound like a F4 spooling up for takeoff. I would use a H100i or even better, a Glacer 240l, these are 120x2 rads and you can keep the fan rpm at a level that's acceptable noise wise.

Any 120x1 rad will need massive air flow to keep up with the 8350 at 100%.

In a hours time any cpu air cooler will have the interior of the case hot as hell.

The CM Glacer 240l is arguably the best aio h2o cooler on the market right now and is price competitive with the best air cooler/fan combination.

i know its an old thread...but CoolerMaster Hyper 212 EVO!!!!!!. i've had one on my FX-8350 for 4-5 months with an overclock to 4.5GHz. the only reason i'm not using one still is because i went with an AIO liquid cooler.

Haha noooo...I got a Nuctua U14S
it will probably be here with the rest of my pc parts in a day or so, the nocuta beat the H80i a ton and wasnt that much worse than the H100i,
And its nocuta fans so noise is not anything that bothers there.

The 8350 @ stock clock @ 100% on all 8 cores for 1 hour will tax the hell out of a 80i, you should look at the 100i to have some headroom should you decide to over clock later on. The CM 240L is about the same price and a much better system. You should be able to get the 240L equivalent in Sweden as a Swifttect H220/H320? Look at the Eisberg 240L.
