Hi all, see picture attached,
recently switched my rig over to a new case, and added some new and more fans in,
now have two front mounted corsair sp120's as intake, and a sp120 exhaust on the roof with a rear mounted rad also as an exhaust with a stock fan,
since changing cases, my cpu is now getting too hot and im not comfortable playing regularly like i usually do with it sitting at between 70-85c under load,
according to hwmonitor when playing pubg earlier it even hit 90c? i would of thought it would have shutdown way before getting this hot. AMD overdrive says my margins whilst idling are between 30-44c if thats any help, in the instance of playing PUBG earlier it actually hit minus margin at one point. Just to add it seems to idle normally, package is 15-20c and main cpu temp around 30-35c :??:
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

just an update for this, i swapped out the fan on my rad for a different fan, and made it an intake instead, somehow this has solved the issue, for whatever reason im unsure of, now sitting at a stable 55c under load and 30c idle.
