Hello there. I don't know if this is the right place, but here it is.

I've been having this problem with my computer for some months now. He keeps getting too hot and then turns off.
I use msi afterburner to monitor my temperature, and when I play some game (or watch something in 1080p), my CPU temperature rises up to 80, 85 degrees celsius, and then turns off.
Here to the specs:
My motherboard is a msi 990FXA-GD65;
My video is a GeForce GTX660;
My processor is a AMD FX™-8350 Eight-Core Processor.
I recently bought a new cooler, a Cooler Master Blizzard T2, but it has not improved my situation not even a little bit, and I already use the force fan control that MSI offers. Even then, it is not enough.
I know my cooler isn't the most modern, but it is one of the best available here in my small town in Brazil.

So, that said, I wonder if anyone know a way to help me.
Me wants some games.
Thank you 002.png

Hi, n00b here but i know for sure that Corsair CX600 is your PSU (power supply unit) not your CPU (central processing unit, i.e. processor).

 

I think they'd want you to give full spec, including CPU model and exact RAM spec too.

I see you've updated some specs, but i think they'd want to know your exact CPU speed as well, and the full RAM spec

 

Perhaps feed the data into: http://www.coolermaster.com/power-supply-calculator/

 

(to see if your PSU is powerful enough)

I recently bought a new cooler, a Cooler Master Blizzard T2, ....

Could it be that thermal-compound was disturbed at some point (maybe when fan was changed or previously)? If there is air-flow; therms are not being transferred properly from CPU to heat-sink. If there is adequate contact then there may be other failure(s) in hardware, incompatibility or driver issues.

Edit: What are normal averages of CPU and memory (RAM) usage/%?
