It shows 90°c But when i touch the cpu Is not hot at all
I replaced the thermal paste Still the same issue
Edit: something fishy here, i removed all the thermal paste, cleaned all the cpu and water cooling
but now i get like 70°c just using the cpu normally
imagine if i play something, i will get to 90 again
i already underclocked the cpu because is an fx 9370
EDIT 2: ok i did nothing and now i get 50-60 max using pc normally ( playing videos at 1080p 60 fps)
wtf is going on

How /where are you obtaining temperatures?

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Include PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition. Heavy use for gaming, video editing, or even bit-mining?

the temps i got them from the bios and now open hardware monitor
eh no need for the full specs, motherboard GA-990FX-Gaming v1, cpu fx 9370 underclocked to lower the temp
psu Sentey 750W Metal Blade Power 80+ Bronze , 4 years old
just gaming

what kind of cooler are you using that you can touch the actual CPU while it's installed?
water cooler, and not really touching it
but u can touch the heatsink of the watercooler and tell that the cpu is hot, but not that time when it showed that the temp was close to 90°c while the pc shuts down, was really weird

edit 3: i did a bit more of underclock voltage of the cpu, stable as 1.3x v , max temp at 70°c while playing games,no performance loss
until i can get a better cooling or upgrade the whole hardware
can close this
