Recently recieved a new build from a friend! These are the specs:
And FX 8370
Radeon Rx 580 series
Gigabyte GA 990x
24gb Kingston ram
Now! My CPU gets into the 80 degrees when I'm playing any game! As it was a friend's old pc I assumed it needed to be cleaned! I cleaned it and nothing has changed. My next idea is to re apply thermal paste!
Any ideas on why this is happening guys! Could the CPU just be busted??? Thanks...

Well, it could be the CPU cooler itself. The fan might not be spinning up to what it should... if your motherboard has an option to change the fan speeds in the UEFI/BIOS, try increasing them, and, what kind of CPU cooler do you have? If it's especially small, it won't be able to cool very well.

I haven't checked if it's tightened down properly! I will check that when I'm home from work! I just hope it is soemthing loose or a little thermal paste! Don't want to replace or buy another CPU 😂 thanks!! You've been great help!
