My recent build is not going well. My R5 3600 idle temps is around 50c-ish. When playing e.g Apex Legends, it spikes up to 90 and remains in the 90+ range throughout unless I alt tab. I am not sure where to go about with this. Not a great person with every knowledge on pc but I tried some things. E.g Remounting the heatsink and reapplying the thermal paste, tried different power cables (idk why) , tried a different gpu (GTX 960) which was better temp wise. Case fans I have 2 intakes and 1 exhaust. I've read that the stock cooler is decent till you decide to oc and in some other case, it's just straight up junk. Also when I brought to some computer shop, temps were perfectly fine running games. Either the a/c in the store was strong or his monitor since the only difference in the setup when I tested in that store was his 60hz monior
