Hello! I have 2 FX-8350's (yes, I am aware of all of the problems, no need to tell me) in 2 machines. Both machines have the exact same hardware, except machine 1 has 32 GB ddr3-1600 and an Asrock 970 pro motherboard, wheras machine 2 has an Asus M5A7BL-M Plus and 16 GB ddr3-1600. I bought both CPU's at the same time, both are the same variant of cpu, and both have the same stock cooler. Both machines have an XFX RX580 8GB OC gpu in them. The problem arises when playing games or doing anything CPU intensive. On machine 1, the thermal throttle begins at close to 95C, whereas machine 2 starts at only 60C. Is there any solution to this? Is this a motherboard or CPU issue? Thanks for the help!
