Dear Community!

I got my FX-8350 a few days ago and when i started my PC, i looked at the temps and BIOS and ASUS Fan Xpert showed about 40 degrees while the fan was quite loud, which would be fine so far.

But when i startet The Witcher 3, the fan went to full speed and after a few minutes of playing, I checked the temps and my CPU was at around 70°, max at 72°. I thought about changing the stock cooler, but it says on the CPU packaging and on AMD support site, that my warranty would be gone.


I have a new ASUS M5A97 R2.0, AMD R9 380 and a 550W PSU from CoolerMaster. OS is Windows 10 64bit.

I installed all the latest drivers for my system.


Are there any suggestions what the problem may be?
