AMD A10 6800k running hot

Hi i have an AMD A10-6800k is running really hot. I first had a cooler master evo 212 but it was running hot so I thought that it was not enough cooling so I saved up and got a Kraken x61. Even though I got a good water cooler it was still running hot at 60-75c. My computer keeps freezing up and crashing. I have removed thermal past and reapplied it. I am not overclocking my cpu.

Re: AMD A10 6800k running hot

Where are you getting these temps from? (BIOS or another program)

Are these temps at idle or under load?

Are you getting BSOD or any error messages?

Get a tube of Arctic MX-4 and use that. Use a very small amount.

I have the same cooler and with MX-4 I can run my old CPU at insane speeds

Re: AMD A10 6800k running hot

Your APU is only a 100w unit that has a maximum user operating temp of 74C. A Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO HSF should be plenty of cooling for your APU. MX-4 will only change the APU temp by a couple degrees at most over the OEM TIM. Make sure that you are reading the Internal APU temp and NOT the CPU temp which is typically for the processor socket which runs hotter than the processor. Do you have good airflow thru your PC case? Are the CPU and other fans set to 100% or Max in the BIOS or O/S?
