I built this PC about 6 years ago. I have never overclocked it. Recently when playing video games (mostly the Division 2) I have been receiving temperature warnings about the CPU. My cpu temps after about an hour of playing rises to between 65-70C. However, my V-Core 1 temp is very high at the same time, between 70-75C. I replaced the CPU thermal paste, I use Arctic Silver Ceramique. Still no temperature drop. My case is well ventilated with 2 front fans drawing air in, 1 bottom fan drawing air in, 2 top fans exhausting air out and 1 rear fan exhausting air. PSU draws air from bottom of case and exhausts. I am unsure whether the CPU is the problem or if the Motherboard is dying? Could it be anything else?

FX processors do run hot and do not tolerate heat well.
If you have overclocked, back off some.
Normally, I would not endorse putting ant more into a FX build.
In your case, buying a good air cooler will help and such a unit can be transported later to a new build.
Look for a tower type cooler using 140mm fans like the noctua NH-D15s, about $80

I have never overclocked the system. I have a tower cpu cooler with 92mm fan. True, FX cpu's tend to run hot but not that hot. I really think its the MB, so I guess I will run it until it dies and then upgrade to Ryzen. Thanks anyway for your input.
