That's definitely really hot for an AMD CPU...Have you overclocked at all? How's your cable management? Also, is there a lot of dust build up?

Is there a dust in the CPU cooler? U can blow it out with compressed air in the can every now and than, when the PC is off.

I don't think so, unless you have some old case.

Whats your case?

What are the max temps so far?

How long is it running?

The temps will start rising to high temp levels.

When in 80 degree mark, than exit the Prime95 by clicking in left upper corner on TEST and select exit.

Or it may run in the background : )

OK, the case is the problem.

When gaming, the GPU gets hot and makes temps rise in the case, and the CPU gets hotter as well and it has only one fan to get rid off the heat. Not enough.

The rear fan gets rid off the temp from the CPU area, but u don't have one, so the hot air gets stuck up there.

If u would get even one fan, it would be enough, I think.

But tell me, who made it without the rear case fan? Genius.

Don't take advice from that one : )

U can take the side fan and install it in the back.

Its easy.
