    1600X overheating in ONE game? Stock on water.




      my 1600X keeps overheating in metro last light redux. In all stress tests I am barely crossing 71 degrees, but in that one particular game the PC did even shut down cause of the heat reaching over 85+ on CPU. The CPU was overclocked stable to 4GHz, but for testing this one case I returned to stock and the problem is the same.


      Is anyone here aware of a problem with that one game that could cause this?
