AMD fx-8350 Heat Problem

Hey, i just want to start off saying im am new here but i am loving this web site..
i just finished building my first rig a couple weeks ago and i was worrying about a heat problem.

I bought an aftermarket CPU fan and heat sink :

and when i am on idle me cpu is around 11-20 Celsius which i consider normal. But while running Battlefield 4 yesterday i was monitoring my temp (using Core temp) and my temperature went up to 64 Celsius. When i quit, after 5 minutes it was back to normal. I have 5 fans, 2 in and 3 out. I was wondering if all of this was normal since i have seen the max temp was 58 Celsius. Thank you for your Responses!

  4. Thanks for your answers! i just bought a Corsair H100i Extreme which i believe will solve the issue. What do you think?
  5. It's a decent cooler , but can't cure all the issues of the budget board.
  6. when under ambient temps the the reading is always wrong but your cpu is not at 11c and 64 while high is still ok but most people try to stay under 62 on the core
