I posted a few weeks ago about wanting to upgrade my rig. Right now it has to go on the backburner. Ok, back to the issue at hand. Here are my specs

 

OS: Win 10

 

CPU: AMD FX-8350

 

MOBO: Asustek MSA97

 

RAM: Gskill DDR3 16gig  (2x8gig)

 

GPU: Radeon R9 280  2g

 

Fan: Stock AMD

 

PSU: Coolmax 750w

 

Case: Raidmax Atx Mid Tower

 

This is the screen shot i took from cam while playing fallout 4. At this point My fans were screaming. The last time it shut off my machine I was notified that my gpu hit 81 celsius. Now I have been reading that this may be A psu problem. What do you guys think? Or does this look normal to you?

81 degrees for R9 280 is quite normal (and card is 3GB). It also depends what clocks that card is using as it has 250W "turbo mode", while "normal" mode is 200W. Install Asus GPU Tweak and post shot from it.

 

Also that CPU stock cooler is very bad and reason why CPU temps are somewhat high. I'm quite sure that "screaming" fan is CPU fan.

It's actually a 270 misprint on mypart. And plan to upgrade the cpu cooler. I know that the sound is not the cpu cooler. I only know that because it sounds doesn't like that when the cpu is idling and the load on the gpu is running at higher temp. I will download the app and see what is going on. Not at home right now, but will post in a couple of days. Thanks.

OK, anyway 77 degrees for GPU is not bad temp.

Do you still want me to post a shot of the asus gpu tweak? I have a program called msi afterburner that pretty much does the same thing i think. Will that work?

Afterburner is OK.

No problems with temps. But better CPU cooler perhaps helps video card run cooler too. Also case cooling is important as card blows all heat inside case.

Ok, well, I guess i will start there. Im looking at the Coolmaster hyper evo 212. Unless you think there is a better one for my fx8350?

There's better (some of the Noctua coolers for example) but the Evo 212 offers a good blend of price to performance.

For example then:

 

Noctua NH-U14S - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/DMjG3C/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhu14s

Noctua DH15S - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xCL7YJ/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhd15s

Thermalright True Spirit 140 - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/qs6BD3/thermalright-cpu-cooler-truespirit140power

Scythe Fuma - https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dVwqqs/scythe-cpu-cooler-scfm1000

 

See link for a large performance comparison of different enthusiast type air coolers - http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/6190/29-cpu-coolers-reviewed-tested-using-our-latest-method

 

Noctua are well known for their engineering quality and quiet fans.  These large coolers can cope with high loads like overclocked high wattage CPU's while keeping fan noise to a minimum.  However, these are all more expensive than the Cooler Master (double to three times the price!).  The CM 212 Evo is a great option for the price (probably the most popular aftermarket cooler), and a significant upgrade from a standard AMD cooler.  You pays your money and takes your choice...
