AMD FX-8320 Overheating, possibly an issue with the fan RPM

My setup:

CPU : AMD FX-8320
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB
Motherboard : Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0
Cabinet : Sharkoon Mask

I first noticed my CPU overheating when my computer shut down while i was playing Battlefield 3 for the first time. My CPU's core temperatures rose very quickly when playing BF3, they rose to 80C in under 3 minutes, in which point i closed the game.

The thing is, when i monitored my CPU fan, it stayed at 2500rpm the whole time. The fan runs at 2500 the whole time from start up. Can someone help me with a possible solution? Thanks in advance.

Did you apply thermal paste when you put it together & are you sure the fan is secured properly?

I orded the computer from a shop that puts it together themselves before it's shipped. After checking, the fan is secured properly to it's place. This is a brand new computer by the way. I tried to disable fan control in BIOS aswell as to set it to manual, RPM still stays at a steady 2500 with any BIOS settings. Thanks for the help, i really appreciate it! Keep em coming!

I would call this "shop" and have a word. A brand new computer should not overheat with stock settings.

Yeah I already decided to contact them since nothing seemed to work. Good thing it has a 2 year warranty. Thanks for the help!
