I've recently updated my GPU and was wondering if that could have anything to do with the power the CPU has to put out.
Since I updated my card, the CPU has been running much hotter. Keep in mind that I have had the same Processor since I had the computer. It's about 3-4 years old. The GPU on the other hand has twice the memory of my old one.
GPU - STRIX Asus GTX 970
Processor - AMD 6120 Six-Core Processor
Motherboard - Gigabyte 2AC8 Motherboard
PSU - Corsair CX750M
Case - MicroATX Guardian
Idle temp: around 40c
Playing WoW w/Ultra Settings: Max 70c after 10 mins.
Playing Shadow Of Mordor w/High Settings: Max 80c after 10 mins.
(The temperature will continue to rise unless I close the game)
My question stands; As a result of the GPU update, is the processor using more power to run games? And if so, what can I do to fix it? If it comes to simply buying a new CPU and motherboard, that's fine.
