      CPU Problems :/

      Hey guys just recently i have been having problems were my CPU is reaching 80 degrees while playing BF4, i was wondering if you guys may know any solutions? I have an AMD FX-8350 with the stock cooler and its not overclocked.
      At idle it sits around 20 degrees

      Most likely cause is poor transmission of heat from the cpu to the cooler. You should get some decent thermal paste (e.g. Noctua NT-H1 or Arctic Silver), and re-paste the cooler. Take the cooler off, clean cooler base and cpu top with isopropyl, allow to dry, apply a pea sized ball of paste to the middle of the cpu top, and reattach the cooler, checking that it doesn't wiggle around.
