First of all, sorry for bad english...

Well... since today (a bit after installing Battlefield 4) i've started having an overheating problem, both CPU and GPU arrives at 80º C, without doing nothing, just power on the PC, and the temperatures start growing..., i've put again thermal paste on the CPU, also i've relocated the CPU & GPU...

Any ideas on what's happening? (I've desinstalled BF4 [just in case] but still happening).

EDIT: here's a screenshot of the temperatures and the performance:

What is the temp in your room? Is it clogged with dust in the fans?
The gpu temp is fine and normal

The cpu is the concerning factor. What cpu cooler?

Hmm thats odd what is the temp in your room?
Try re applying some good thermal paste on the cpu that should help, something like MX-4

Turn the pc off and let it cool for a few mins, then start up and go into the bios and the temps there.

Its possible you could have something running in windows which is loading your GPU/CPU causing all the heat.

That is not a good brand for thermal compound. Did you clean off the old stuff first???

Ok, well if its heating like this in the bios, then your CPU cooler isnt making a good connection, or you have something blocking airflow.

It should not be rising like that in the bios.

I've changed the CPU cooler with another (worse) but it works fine now (between 40-45º C), but the GPU stills getting hotter
