Started using an AMD fx-8300 recently.Upgraded from AMD Athlon x2 250.

After the cpu hits 70 degrees while gaming, i noticed that when i open up my desktop screen, there seems to be a minor flickering.

It isn't bad enough to ruin your experience but i sense that there is something wrong with this.

If this is about overheat,i can easily solve this,but since screen flickers when doing hard work it can be a problem about my psu sufficiency

So im wondering if this is about my CPU's overheat,or lack of energy from my power supply ?

Thanks

and full system spec? include make and model of the psu
