I need help, the CPU of my new pc build, the amd fx8320 is overheating touching 75 degrees celcius (room temp around 25C) on idle with the stock cooler, what can be the problem? The case is the CM k380 the cables are well-managed and the airflow is not bad. Is there any possibility that the chip is problematic?
 
Most likely the cooler is not seated well on the CPU.
The stock cooler is not that good anyway, since you would have to remove the paste and purchase/apply new paste in order to reseat it, I would just replace it with a coolermaster heatsink, the 212 evo is the standard around here, but even a cheaper one would be a decent step up over factory.
