Ive overclocked my cpu (amd a8-3870k) from 3.0 to 3.6 but when i play games.....temps go as high as 70 overclocked and 53 normal (using coretemp)...Second thing, i feel my fps are a bit slower even bf4 overclocking, i dont know why :(...Can someboby help me please, it would be really appreciated..And btw i had a hard time putting the cooler and it moved alot with the cooler paste (i think its chinese) anyways...ty again :)

  1. Might want to look for a better PSU...might also pull the cooler and reapply thermal, Artic Silver or compound of your choice
