Hi, my fx6300 keeps exceeding it's recommended temps even though i have 5 case fans and the CM hyper 212 evo in my zalman z11 plus case. for those more experienced then me i have a theory on why that i hope people can answer. my build is:

zalman z11 plus
fx6300
1tb hdd
128gb ssd
asrock 970 extreme 4
8gb ram
radeon 7870 XT OC
coolermaster silent pro gold 550w

i was wondering since the amount of watts needed goes up when playing games, the problem is that my psu doesn't produce enough watts thus increasing stress and temps on my cpu?

That PSU should be more than enough for your system. Are you OC'ing the processor at all?

What kind of temps are you looking at on the CPU? What is the ambient temperature of the room?

Hi,

The PSU is fine. How did you apply the thermal paste? What cooler do you use? Did you overclock your CPU?

i found a site that listed them and my evo got quite loud but even though it says it take 85w i've heard it can take much more when gaming and while i don't oc the cpu the gpu automatically overclocks itself which will also take more power than it normally would so i'm kinda doubtful my psu's enough
