Hi, My PC is getting very hot when I play Apex Legends for only 30 mins.
Can you identify which of my components causes this heating issue?
I do overclock but not that much.

Motherboard: Asus TUF B450m-Plus Gaming
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600x (I also use its stock cooler)
GPU: Asus Strix Rx 580 Top OC 8gb
PSU: Seasonic Focus Gold GX-650watts,
RAM: 16gb Patriot Viper Steel 3200mh ddr4
SSD: 500gb Samsung 970 EVO PLUS M.2 NVMe
HDD: 1tb Seagate Barracuda, 64mb 7200rpm
Fans: DeepCool RF 120mm, 5 packs

Any recommendations on how I can reduce the heat?
Also if I buy a new CPU cooler instead of just using the AMD stock cooler will solve the issue?
Thank you.

What are the temperatures? idle and in-game?

It's normal for the instantaneous CPU temp to pulse, especially at idle. Looking at an 'average' temp reading is best to know the true thermal state. Also, it's normal for Ryzen 3000 to get up to 70's or even 80's in heavy use.

The temperature while gaming is around 60 to 70.
Idle time temperature is around 35 to 40.
I guess this is just normal.
Thanks.
