You need another fan on the rear and if you can another one on top. Is normal to overheat because you don't have any fan to pull the hot air out of the case.

I also own the fx-6300. What type of case do you have? Model to be specific. If the case allows clearance for the Hyper 212 Evo (120 x 80 x 159 mm) Id recommend that.
I personally own a Hyper 212 Evo, suffering the same issues you have listed, purchasing the Evo along with Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste, I saw immediate results. Ranging from 8C cooler whilst running at idle and not hitting temperatures above 55C whilst under full-load and gaming.
Hopes this helps!

yes what exact case do you have? Get an exhaust 120mm fan for sure, any cheap one would do, cooler master fans are decent. And The CM Hyper 212 Evo would help alot. If your case is too small, you will probably have to look at a low profile cooler, Cooler Master actually makes a decent one, as well as Noctua, but many people don't like the ugly color of them lol.

I own a 431 elit plus mid tower CM . I still have the same problem so i am considering to buy a 90mm fan for the rare but just 1 and get the 212 Evo. should i go for more fans?
