Your graphic card blocking most of the airflow from the bottom and cycling hot air. Upgrade your case or remove the optical drive and install a fan there.

I think removing the optical drive seems like a good idea, I don't actually use it anyway. Thanks for the tip! Anything else possibly I should take note of?

I'm definitely going dust it off with a compressed air soon, just need my hands on one

Thanks alot for the feedback! Glad to know that from here the stock cooler seems to be the culprit, if you don't mind could you share what is your current cooler at the moment?

And did you have to reapply the thermal paste into the processors once you've removed it to place the new cooler?
Thanks for letting me know! But for now I think I might think of doing something else for the time being instead of tweaking the voltage, I'm afraid I might mess up something and permanently damage the entire board haha
I'm using AMD Wraith Spire cooler right now, changed to Ryzen smile.gif

I did change the thermal paste before when I changed the cpu cooler, try to get Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut, its one of the best right now biggrin.gif
The thermal paste you get from the new cpu cooler is good as well, they work biggrin.gif

Your Intel Stock Cooler looks like full of dust. Disassemble the heatsink, clear it with water and let it dry. Clear the old thermal compound and use a fresh one reinstalling it.

Whether CPU or GPU, as long as under 80c it's all good.

81c to 90c range - still fine but it's time to look at doing some cleaning / airflow improvement.

High-end graphics card rarely go over 75c these days, the fan will go with high RPM to keep things low. Cards like those using stock / reference cooler (eg Nvidia whatever model Founder's Edition) then the card reaching 80c is normal.

alright, got it! i'll probably test this out before directly purchasing a new one, if it doesn't work then i'll most likely get a new cooler.

Thanks for the advice! I noticed it's only on heavy AAA games like mass effect andromeda, i've played resident evil 7 yesterday and noticed that my card barely reaches 65, in fact my cpu was mostly at 55s only. But then again, dust seems to be the major concern here and i'll get that checked out.

One question though, i noticed the latest casings from everywhere does not have side panels with ventilation nor top panels, mostly fans are in the front and back i'm guessing to minimize dust intake. Would fans in the front and back be fine? mostly front pushing the air to back and the back exhausts it out.
