My AMD FD8350FRHKBOX FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition Processor runs at 141 F. It's brand new, with a brand new water cooling system, with a dual radiator. I've been told that the problem is the thermal paste between the lid and the CPU cores, and that I need to replace this thermal paste with high quality thermal paste, and put the CPU back together again. I spent all my money on the CPU and cooling System, so I can't spend any more money. What do I do ?

 

I don't understand why these CPUs seem to overheat stock out of the box. They are very expensive to replace. I don't understand why I should have to remove the Lid, and replace the geese in order to get it to cool properly.  This CPU is in my main Computer, so I can't send it in, without a replacement.
