   My fx-8350 used to run with pretty good temps but about 2 or 3 months it's running at 50~65c on desktop and about 30c with no programs open. 

   I've tried: re installing windows, using 2 different brands of thermal paste, adding +1 fan in the back of the seidon, using the stock coolerbox but nothing stops it from shutting down. 

   PS: turbo core is not on and multiplier is on 20 (4ghz), stock voltage, rams also stock.


   The only game I can play right now is LOL, anything that I may open will stick to the 86c margin and will shutdown. Even apex loadscreen or league of legends if I dont cap the fps to 60 and stick to the low settings.


   May someone help me?
