I've had this problem for a few months now actually. I've seen others had this problem before, and I did all I could, but it never really solved it, so I hoped it would just solve itself over time. I figured it was time to ask for help.

My old RAM was the Klevv Neo 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR3-1866 Memory, and my avg CPU temp can be as low as 50 -60 C, and when I'm using a bunch of programs or gaming, it would go from 65-75 C. And the preferred max is 80 C.

I then upgraded my RAM to the Patriot Viper 3 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR3-1866 Memory, and I almost never see my CPU going below 70 C, and avg 75-79 C, regardless if I'm idle or gaming. Fortunately I've never hit 80 C so far, but I'm worried it'll get there if I don't do something.

Any suggestions?

Check to make sure the cooler didn't came loose
I just replugged the cooler, and even added new thermal paste, and also airsprayed the dust off. But the avg CPU temp is still avg 75-79 C.

I saw some solutions that I may need a new CPU cooler. You think that could work?
