Hi guys,

I need help, i don't know a lot about computers.
This is my rig:
AMD Fx-8150 black edition
asus crosshair formula V
corsair vengeance 16gb

I recently put a Corsair A50 on there, but...didn't work as i expected because it's continue to run hot. I don't want to overclock or something i just want to stay at default.

With default stock cooler, I couldn't play battlefield 3, because it goes to 45celcius to 60celcius in 2 o 3 minutes. With the Corsair A50, well it stays at 52celcius for around 5minutes of play; i haven't test it more than that because i have other troubles with voltages in Ai Suite II/HwMonitor; so i uninstalled the Ai Suite.

But today i noticed something in AMD Overdrive, i don't know much about this subject, but the Frequency is hitting 3900mhz, with default being 3600, right?
If i am right, that will be the cause of the overheating problem; if thats it, can you tell me, there's a way in windows i can change that to the default stock 3600 and keep it that way?

Here some pictures of my rig and temperatures. Thank you.
