Need Some help in cooling AMD CPU

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

i need some help in cooling my AMD FX-6300 processor. It is running on the stock cooler from AMD but it runs to 75 c within 5 minutes of running any heavy gaming app or any video render. it is running on a ASUS M5A99X EVO mobo. the machine simply shuts down and after turning it on it gives a thermal shutdown error message.

Ive tried arctic silver compound but to no avail. Will it work with a liquid cooler ?

Pls help im running out of options:disgust:

It sounds like your cooler is not making good contact with the CPU. What is the contact patch like when you remove the stock cooler, has the arctic silver compound spread evenly and thinly across the heatspreader?

Yes the paste was thinly & evenly spread..

anyways i send the cpu and fan back to AMD for replacement.. they have approved for replacement and it should be here next week..

Thanks for the reply

Any CPU supports liquid coolers, you have to check if the case fits it and fits the radiator and it should work fine.
