I know aftermarket/water cooling is the best solution... but does anyone own one of these CPU's thats using just the stock cooler right now? for someone whose on a tight budget, an aftermarket cooler would have to be bought later on down the road so wondering what peoples temps are like with just the stock cooler? Will you get a much more stable temp by disabling all the bios features like AMD Turbo / k8 cool n quiet / C1E ect... to stop the cpu spiking voltages... Any info would be apreciated but I do know that aftermarket cooling is needed, I'm just looking at what I'm dealing with for now until I can get a closed loop water cooler... read multiple places saying that the FX threshold temps are 55-60c, that seems REALLY low, is there any truth to this? I've had other AMD CPUS like the Phenom IIs run near 75-80c for years without issue in the past...Considering these CPUs are supposed to such an Overclockers dream, that temp would seem almost impossible to get a decent OC if you weren't using water-cooling of some kind........ Thanks again for any replys.......
