AMD Temps Troubling

Hey! So i finally got my pc up and running with the help ofc of a person (he teched me the ropes lol). All is well until the cpu fan that was included in the cpu box has a hard time spinning. So my freind recommended me to replace the fan with something else. So, I said yes fully trusting his judgement in everything. So he replaced it with some weird ass fan that i have not seen before (I'll provide some pictures). ofc it runs and the fan is spinning. I thought i can finally use it without any problems. Until I installed speecy on my computer. And I saw the cpu temp the temperature reached a whopping 90 degrees (I'm browsing at that time). That can't be right so I went ahead and looked at other cpu monitoring software. Hwmonitor, Coretemp and even Overdrive.



This is the result:

Different software different results



The weird ass fan:

Oh, And my freind said that he did not apply a thermal paste. He said that's not the problem why my CPU has a High Temp.

Touched the heat sink of the cpu it doesn't feel like a 90 degree temp.
No problem when using it tho. No random shutdown and no signs of slowing either
This is troubling me, I'm so afraid that if I continue using my PC it will burn. And I don't want that to happen. I just bought this man
 
What are your 100% load 'temperatures' like? For reference: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/faq/id-2122665/understanding-temperature-amd-cpus-apus.html

For those particular lines of AMD CPUs you should be using Overdrive to monitor thermal margins (and perhaps cross referencing with a normal temperature reading from another software if you want). As long as the thermal margin is above 0 deg C on a full load there isn't anything to worry about. Use Overdrive's inbuilt stress tester if necessary.

So the higher the margin the better the temps? I'm getting like a 60 degree margin

On ilde. However I dont know how to run the stress test here in overdrive? Want to know what my margin on full load

 
Been a while since I've used Overdrive but there should be a tab (or similar) which allows a basic stress test. The interface should look something like this:



Go to Stability Test on the left hand side and it'll give you options to put on a full load to check your thermal margins.
