I have an a-10 5800k with stock cooler. I know the cooler is horrible as is, but it can't be that bad where I get 100+ degrees Celsius. I have a midtower case and 2 fans (push/pull). When turning on the compter and idling, I get right now 60-80 Degrees Celsius. I'm very scared, I get BSOD sometimes and display crashes. I actually have two of these computers side by side, one I built for me, and one for my brother. Same results. Could it be the settings? I turned off the AMD throttling so now it's 3.8 Ghz. Please help me, thanks.
touch the heatsink with your hands, if its hot, then the cooler is mounted correctly, if its warmish then you probably dont have propper contact with the CPU. @ 100 degrees celsius your fingers should be fried (i doubdt that the cooler is mounted correctly )
