About 2 years ago I came on here and asked for some PC upgrading help and you guys were great. You guys gave me some good tips and I followed all of them, except for the CPU. I chose the 8 core FX-9370 because I thought "Oh, I can run more programs, bla bla bla...my H100i will keep it cool, who cares about the warnings about it being hot." You all said to get the Intel processors and boy were you guys right. Whenever I have a game open (CS: GO, Path of Exile, doesn't matter what it is), it runs between 58c and 65c, often with it shutting down to prevent from melting the CPU. I have the H100i set on PERFORMANCE mode so it is working its hardest to keep it cool...its loud as hell but I don't mind....it still goes to 65c. I have also adjusted different voltage clocks, does nothing but lowers my FPS and STILL overheats. My games are all set on LOW quality too when they can easily run on high.
I have reset the liquid cooler on the CPU several times, added extra fans, etc. and it still goes to 60c+.
Can you guys give me some help choosing a new CPU?
These are my current specs:
Processor: AMD FX-9370 Eight-Core Processor
Memory: 16384MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula Z AM3+
Thanks a ton for any help!
