Hello, I'm not that good with computer parts and specifications in general but I would like to know what kind of options I should be looking for to try and fix the overheating I get for multiple games such as: Black Ops 3, Black Desert and Dragon Age: Inquisition.

 

It seems to overheat a lot more when I have anti-aliasing on but when its off it runs better. I want to know what I may need to upgrade or look into in order to make my system more reliable and compatible with ultra settings on games.

 

This is my current setup:

MSI Gtx980TI Nvidia Graphics card 6gb
 
Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO Black Fan
 
Corsair 16GB 2x8GB CL11 Vengeance Pro DDR3 - Gold
 
Corsair Carbide Series 330R Titanium Mid-Tower ATX - Titanium
 
MSI Z97 Gaming 3 Intel LGA1150 ATX Motherboard
 
Corsair CX750 80 PLUS Bronze PSU
 
Intel Core i7-4790K CPU Quad Core 4GHZ Socket H3
 
Western Digital Blue 1TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0GB/s 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive x2
 
Samsung 2.5-Inch 250GB 850 EVO SSD

I will make sure to give more information later on today if nothing is clear from the computer components themselves as to what the problem may be through several screenshots of the system temperatures.
 
Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for giving this a look,

~Slavik
 
Edit:
 
I've been considering getting water cooling but I am unsure if that will fix things and if so which one I should be looking to buy.
 
Edit 2 - images of performance with games running at maximum settings using the software OpenHardwareMonitor:

Those are what I consider to be normal gaming temps, unless your GPU / CPU are throttling because of them. Watercooling won't help unless you are going to build a custom watercooling loop NZXT Kraken / Corsair Hydro series and similar are all hype.

Thank you for the reply, I'll give the custom watercooling a read through.

 

If they really are deemed safe temperatures then I won't worry too much about it but I do still want to improve it.

If the temps were truly unsafe, your PC would be turning itself off to protect itself. this is a bit outdated, but still worth a good read if you're interested in custom watercooling (the underlying principles are still the same).
