fx9370 temp issue

Hello Folks,


This problem is quite incredibly stupid. I have been using this PC for 1 year, and now, everytime I´m playing with, for example, fsx, DCS, BF3. The computer restarts, the problem comes from the high CPU temperature.


I have run prime95 tests, and the temperature goes from 35-40 (where I live temperatures are like 26 inside my home) to 95º C in less than 5 mins.

My question is, why does the computer reboot when playing and not when doing the prime95´s test?

I would like to know if these CPU´s are made to hold these incredibly exagerated temperatures, and if they are, I would like to know how to change settings in order to avoid these problem.

For more information, these are my specs:


MB: Asus M5A99FX Pro R2.0

CPU: AMD fx-9370

Cooling: CoolerMaster Seidon 120M

Graphics: EVGA Gtx 760

16gb 1866

Power: Nox Urano Vx 750W PFC


Thank you very much in advance.
