Sorry, my questions were more geared towards mickfields, but the same info is helpful from you as well.
TIM is Thermal Interface Material, since he was using AS5 I asked if he had properly applied it, so I assume that you are using the pre-aplied goop on the stock cooler.
I hope that CnQ is working, because the rpms you are reporting along with the temperatures all seem very high, so I'd say something is amiss somewhere, 1000w should be sufficient, and even if it's not delivering rated power, should still be plenty, can't fault temps too much on that. can you post a picture of your case internals? see if theres an airflow problem??
Wait, you just had your CPU replaced via AMD RMA, did they ship you a whole new box? or a tray CPU, in otherwords, when you plugged the new CPU in, did you use the original cooler, with the original thermal interface material (TIM)? if so, I'd consider replacing the TIM with some new stuff. those pre-applied pads are typically a one shot, one kill solution, once you replace the CPU, or remove the heat sink, you need to reapply the TIM. if that;'s the case, run down to a local shop, get some goup, I'd suggest some Arctic Silver 5 (AS5) as most shop will have it, but the regular cheap white goup would probably work so long as you don't plan on overclocking.
If they sent you a new HSF with the CPU, then disregard the above, and see my initial request for an image.
