Hi, I have purchased this FX8350 on the 4/15/2013 and ever since I had temp problems I tried the stock cooler an aftermarket cheap 25$ cooler and finally i now own an h100i and my temps are horrible and getting worse.
I never thought the problem could be the CPU itself but after 3 cpu coolers I can't think of anything else. It has NO overclock at all whatsoever and I'm probably never going to be able to. At this moment I have an h100i on it and idling at around 15c and when I put load on it like let's say just running bf4 my pc will shutdown in about 5 to 10m because of the temps reaching 90c+.
So, when I first installed the h100i (the first time before reseat and before trying an air cooler for about a month) I had idling temps that could reach as low as 8c but would quickly reach 60c on load that lasted for about a month or 2 then my pc started to shutdown (5 times) and then would stay stable for an other month...without shutdowns... I tried using an air cooler afterward and the temps on load would reach 75c+ so then I changed back to h100i and it's horrible I can't play any intensive game really because it WILL shutdown.
So is this covered? Can I get a replacement? Will I end up paying fees for something the company failed to do?
