Thermal paste is covering all the processor and heat sinks. Idle is 32-35c. I use Prime 95 and I cant shut it off quick enough before it gets to 80c (actually less than a minute). I don't understand what is going on. Other specs: Asrock 990FX Extreme9, 550 PSU (XFX Bronze 80), XFX HD Double D 7870, Elite 430 CM case, 6 fans (1x140mm in front intake to HDD and SSD, 5 120mm (side in, back out, Push pull on Hyper, top out x 2)). I am running everything stock. Hyper fans are connected to board, rest on NZXT fan controller all at 100%. Please help this just isn't right!

Edit: I was checking out GPU trouble shoot and totally posted this in wrong thread. First time poster my bad!

How much thermal paste? If you have it too thick it will make it way worse.

It is not oozing out the sides or anything. Just fully covered thin layer.. I can actually see a thing layer around the edge of sink plate.

Make sure you do not use too much thermal paste -- which brand is it?

It is the CM that came with it.

Just out of curiousity have you tried dropping the stock cooler back on and give prime95 another test? See if maybe something is wrong with the cooler.

Also have you checked to make sure something isn't messed up in the bios like your voltage going up too high? Try resetting to defaults.

I actually am debating that right now. I could not see where anything could be wrong with it but HELL at this point I am desperate and stressed about this!

Update: I put in stock cooler and it idles at 42c and I shut of Prime95 at 71c... ERRRRR!!!

Try disabling power saving features in the bios at the same time perhaps that might be causing a problem with voltages.
