I have a FX-8350 and seem to have an over heating problem.

When the system first turns on and at idle (turbo disenabled, with turbo enable, temp. was 7-9C higher) the temp. starts at around 37-38C and rises to 41-43C. The entire time the system is running, it smells like something is over heating or burning. When the reset is pressed, it comes back with a temp. of 50-51C and slowly drops to 41-43C. I'm using the stock cooler that came with it, I've reinstalled the cooler with no changes. I purchased a GAMMAXX 400 and was wondering if it might do a better job cooling the CPU before I do some damage to it.... So far, everything has been at idle, don't have the OS installed yet....
