Hey guys, so I upgraded my CPU to i7-3770 from i5-3470, I had a problem booting up pc, because BIOS needed to be upgraded, I upgraded it successfully and CPU booted, everything is fine.

The temperature is going very high for some reason I don't know, I installed cpu cooler be quite pure rock slim, but the temperature is at 45C when doing nothing, and if i try playing warzone it gets to 96C.

I can't think of anything that can be causing that so I would love to use your help, thanks.

Applied new thermal paste also.


CPU: i7-3770 3.4

GPU: RTX 2060

RAM:16 GB

I run warzone and pc on SSD.

Thanks in advance.

Very dumb question but did you remove the plastic cover on the bottom and fasten the screws tight enough? Also make sure that the fan cables are connected to the headers...
