Brand new AMD FX8350 CPU overheating

I recently replaced my damaged FX8350 CPU with a new one, with the wraith cooler. However the CPU temperatures exceed 80 degrees even when performing basic tasks, and air flow does not seem to be the issue and the CPU settings are set as normal (no OC).


Computer specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte 78LMT-USB3

CPU: AMD FX8350 8 core 4.10ghz

CPU cooler: AMD Wraith Max

RAM : Hyperx savage 16gb 1600MHz DDR3 (Kit of 4x4gb)

GPU: MSI Armor Geforce GTX 1060

SSD: Hyperx fury 120gb


600gb hard drive


Here are some pictures showing the BIOS start up page showing CPU setting and PC Health Status and the physical set up (both side panels removed to try and assist cooling).


Any advice would be greatly appreciated, as going through existing posts none seem to pinpoint what my problem might be.
