Compared to what you guys say it is supposed to be at max. I have a Cooler Master Nepton 140 water cooler and it kept my previous FX processor at 40C max. This is reaching max temps of 78C. At complete Idle, it runs at 10-25C. This is amazing. Under load however, it runs WAY TOO HOT and it scares me. I have a Full Cooler Master Storm Trooper case. 16GB1866 Corsair Dominator Ram, GTX 970 (4GB). What can you do about this? I would almost rather get a FX8350 or something. This is ridiculous. I have always been a huge fan of AMD and I have ALWAYS used your processors. My only problem is that this is running almost 20C hotter than it says on the site. Even with a water cooler that I know works well. I am just worried.
