So I noticed when I play games like Far Cry 4 and Mirrors Edge Catalyst, my fans ramp up. I opened HW Monitor, and my cpu avg temp under load is 77C (170F) and maxing at 79C(174F).  These temps seem a little high... Is this cause for concern? Running stock cooler and paste that shipped with the cpu. No overclocking. IDLE Temp is 112 F

SPECS:

AMD FX8350 8 core cpu

MSI Geforce GTX 960 4 gb Arctic

16 GB Gskill Ripjaws

Samsung EVO SSD HDD 240GB

Win 10 Home

900 Watt Corsair PSU
