FX 6300 temperature, is this normal?


Broken In
I bought CPU and motherboard a few days ago. Now i have :
AMD FX 6300
Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 Rev 6.0
Cooler Master TX3 Evo with 2200 RPM Ball Bearing Fan.
Sapphire HD 7770.
Corsair Spec 02 Cabinet.

No OC, Turbo Core disabled, using EasyTune6 to read the temperatures :
Room temperature is 32-33dc.
Ideal CPU temperature is 36-37dc.
Full load CPU temperature is 58-60dc.

Are these temperatures normal? I keep reading the operating temperatures for FX series is < 65dc so if this is true, should i be worried?
Buy the following CPU Cooler to enable the CPU to run cooler like 35-40 degrees.

Cooler Master Hyper 212x -3154.

Just bought a 212X and the results are amazing....i have a FX-8350 and it never crosses 48C, where previouslyit would reach 80C and my PC would shutdown.

Hands down buy the Cooler if u have the budget.

PS. Your CPU temps aren't that high either,even if you use the current config its fine.

After some more research, i was able to read the temperatures from HWMonitor and Core Temp correctly. Here is a screenshot of it after 5 tests in Prime95.


Apparently TMPIN00 is PCB/Southbridge temperature. TMPIN01 is CPU Socket temperature. TMPIN02 is Chipset/Northbridge temperature. Package is Core temperature. EasyTune shows TMPIN0 as System and TMPIN02 as CPU temperature.
Core Temp shows the Package temperature with TJmax 80dc.
