    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 power supply is a Corsair CX600.
    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 56479e0cd0b14107e923e453e32bcc7a.png

    Hi Yukeee and welcome. Thanks for stopping by.

    I'm not one that builds machines but there are others here who do. Obviously, you know what the problem is. You need to move the heat away from the CPU and GPU. One of the builders will be here to lend a hand.

    Hi Yukeee.
    If you are a serious gamer and want 1080p, you would be advised to think about Water Cooling.
    Air coolers are next to useless from my experience when gaming.
    Is your Computer Over Clocked?

    My computer overheats even with such games as Adventure Capitalist, with is just pathetic. Is water cooling necessary for something like that? :/
    Not, it is not overclocked, I don't even know how to do that.

    GimboV, i don't know how to answer that. But it's old, it's the oldest part of my computer, I changed all parts but never changed my CPU, it dates from 2009.
    EDIT: By CPU, you mean what? I always thought the cpu was the processor or the "casing" of the computer
    EDIT2: Sorry for understanding next do nothing about computers. I believe my CPU is a AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor. Does that sound right?

    Your room temp will determine how hot your pc will run.. Talked to a lot of techs in Indonesia area and they just take the side panel off and if needed add another portable fan to blow inside the pc. This should help or at least until you decide if you can get a water cooler. Btw that is the best way to keep the heat down for gamers..

    Hi Yukeee welcome to the best forum.

    Where do you have the system placed?

    If it is placed in a poorly ventilated area. Like a cupboard with the door closed. Make sure all of your intake vents are clear and if you have not done it in a while get some cans of compress air and blow all the filth out of it.

    Even a stock cooler for an 8350 will never reach 85c. Is the cooler attached properly? How much thermal compound did you apply when installing the new cpu cooler (heatsink)?

    I have bought many coolers. Some new coolers come with the heatsink paste already applied.

    I assume your system is a desktop, correct?

    Your problem MAY be the case you are using. The older cases place your power supply at the top, right above the area where your CPU and memory are located. VERY BAD idea.

    I use cases by Antec (use link to see what I use on my new desktop).

    Antec places the power supply ON THE BOTTOM away from the motherboard, comes with 2 inbuilt fans. One fan at the top back (where a old power supply fan exhaust would be) AND one ON TOP, both blowing out. Heat rises so the fan on top makes airflow much better. Has an fan port on the side panel if you want to install an extra fan (I installed one blowing in). The result is, it dropped my system temps.

    See my Blog post on my older system where I use an Antec case, it has temp charts.
