CPU & GPU overheating problem

First of all, sorry for bad english...

Well... since today (a bit after installing Battlefield 4) i've started having an overheating problem, both CPU and GPU arrives at 80º C, without doing nothing, just power on the PC, and the temperatures start growing..., i've put again thermal paste on the CPU, also i've relocated the CPU & GPU...

Any ideas on what's happening? (I've desinstalled BF4 [just in case] but still happening).

EDIT: here's a screenshot of the temperatures and the performance:

More about cpu gpu overheating problem
  1. What case do you have? Do you have many fans? good airflow?

    Its showing full GPU load on that screen shot, so that would create heat, but perhaps your case doesnt have enough airflow.
  2. What case? How many and what fans? Dusty?
    High ambient temp?
    The gpu running at 80c is fine and normal not the cpu though.
    What cooler for the cpu?

    I have this case: http://fotos.pccomponentes.com/torres/torres_atx/aerocool_strike_x_one_avance_usb_3_0.jpg (now opened, so, yes, there's airflow), and I have 2 fans, and work perfectly

    What is the temp in your room? Is it clogged with dust in the fans?
    The gpu temp is fine and normal

    The cpu is the concerning factor. What cpu cooler?

    Nop, it's not dusty, just cleaned it all.

    This cooler for the CPU: http://www.profesionalreview.com/images/Imagenes/articulos/septiembre/arctic-freezer-13-pro-co/arcticfreezer13proco-portada.jpg

    The temp in my room... about 25 I guess

    Hmm thats odd what is the temp in your room?
    Try re applying some good thermal paste on the cpu that should help, something like MX-4

    This is the thermal paste just applied http://voccat.es/35100001-16294-large/pasta-termica-deepcool-z3-15g.jpg, and it worked fine until today :(
  8. Turn the pc off and let it cool for a few mins, then start up and go into the bios and the temps there.

    Its possible you could have something running in windows which is loading your GPU/CPU causing all the heat.

    That is not a good brand for thermal compound. Did you clean off the old stuff first???

    I did it, the temp starts arround 50, but it grows up until 80

    Ok, well if its heating like this in the bios, then your CPU cooler isnt making a good connection, or you have something blocking airflow.

    It should not be rising like that in the bios.

    I've unmounted and mounted the CPU like 5 times, and the airflow is good, i have the case opened.... what should i do? Look for a new cpu? :S
  14. Its very hard to say without seeing it. Do you have another CPU cooler you could try?

    Yes, the one that comes with the cpu
  16. I've changed the CPU cooler with another (worse) but it works fine now (between 40-45º C), but the GPU stills getting hotter
