Howdy all, Just built a FX-8350 system using the noctua nh-d14 cpu cooler and I have it with the fans facing the back of the case. I have a 200mm fan blowing air in from the front and 2 120mm fans on top exhausting air out and the 120mm on back blowing air out and the power supply fan facing downwards. Just finished installing windows 8.1 and did all the setting up - I just tried playing BF4 and the cpu is hitting temps of 67 degrees Celsius as I had asus suite ii installed it was coming up with a big warning sign. Now is this sort of behaviour with this cpu cooler fan and cpu normal or should I be seeing far less temps? My room temp is warm due to the location im in but was hoping I had enough fans in the case to help. Should I try changing the fan formation around? Any help greatly appreciated =)

Gut feeling is it's not mating to the CPU properly. Does the metal of the heatsink feel warm under use? If so it's absorbing heat from the CPU but might be a bit loose. If it's cold it's barely doing anything. I would suggest removing it, clearing off the paste with isopropyl alcohol and paper towel, and re-installing it.

AMD CPU's run hotter than the equivalent Intel parts. I don't feel that mid 60's is a bad temperature in a warm room while playing a multi-threaded CPU intensive game like BF4. What thermal paste are you using?

67C is pretty good AFAIK for gaming. I would only be worried if it was 90+ across the board and it wasn't a full benchmark. Can't hurt to reseat the cooler and try again. I ran a NH-D14 for 5 years, My i7 950 ran at about 85C when gaming on it with an overclock to 3.8, and that cooler was able to keep me running all the way up to 4.8GHz suicide runs.
