FX8350 overheat.

So, thought I would dig out parts from an old system and rebuild it. But I'm having some serious problems keeping this thing cool... it hits 60-70 on boot then goes up to 90+ then crashes when trying to run Cinebench or AIDA64 Benchmark I've replaced the old fan from the Cryorig H7 with 2x Noctua NF-P12 1700s (Push-Pull), with another 4x 120mm High performance fans on the case... 2x intake on the front, 1x exhaust at the back and 1x exhaust at the top ... Idle temps are 35*C... When I stick my hand in the case it's cool... all the heatsinks are cool to touch... I've tried re-seating the HS and reapplying thermal paste (Cooler Master Mastergel Maker) but nothing is working.

Does anyone have any ideas?
