So, recently I upgraded my CPU cooler to the 212x and it has been having far worse performance than I expected. The temperature is as following: http://imgur.com/a/VbPHf
I cleaned all previous thermal paste and applied the new one correctly (I think) and installed the cooler the right way, so I have no idea what could be causing this high temperatures
The screen flashing happens while playing and I already tried to update my drivers
Thanks in advance!

I dont think it is wrong readings because i tried 3 different programs. But i also dont think it is wrong mounting and thermal paste, as I mounted it as it was in the instructions and did not put too much thermal paste and nor too little

Voltage does not seem to go higher than 1.404V wich I guess is ok, the temperature was actually lower than 60 degrees, but the flickering screen problem still continues.
Thanks for the answers man!
