CPU running too hot, for my feeling.

Hello!

I have a question.
During idle use of the computer my CPU temp is 35-40 degrees.
During load use it's rising to 75 degrees, which goes out of my comfort zone.

How could this be? I have a good airflow, and enough coolers which do enough intake and exhale.

Specs:

K380 Cooler master Case
Asrock Extreme3 r2.0 Motherboard
AMD FX 8350 4.0GHZ (not overclocked)
Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Cpu cooler
MSI GTX 660ti 2GB GDDR5 (not overclocked)
MS-tech N750 VAL 750w PSU
8GB RAM 1600mhz
64GB SSD
500GB HDD

Resolution and settings: 1920x1080p on all games Ultra.

I have tried everything, but It's impossible for me to find a solution to get those temps down while gaming.

I have replaced the CPU cooler twice for another, but that didn't have any effect at all.

2 fans bring cool inside the case, and one on the back of the case exhales the heat.
Currently there is one fan on my CPU cooler.
I've done alot of cable management, so that couldn't be the problem.
It doesn't matter what I do, my cpu temp rise to 75 degrees while gaming.

Can someone please help me out?
I don't know what to do anymore.

Thanks in advance,

Greetings,
Leon Muizer.

Just because its outside "YOUR" comfort zone, this is irrelevant.

The question should be if its outside the CPU comfort zone.. and 75 degrees is fine for a CPU under load.

There are lots of things you can do to get it lower. but if CPU is OK.... why?

Cheers.

An 8350 should not run that hot at stock clocks. Does it literally go to 75 as soon as a load is put on the CPU, or does it gradually rise? Also, does it stick bang on 75C, or does it jump around a bit? Lastly, what program are you using to monitor temperatures?

That isn't necessarily true. 75 is fine for an INTEL CPU. For AMD FX series CPU's, I would not advise going over 65-70C for any extended period of time. His CPU should be idling around 25-30C, and maybe maxing out at around 60C under load.
