1) Change the cooler to the top-down blowing design type, not the tower type, because your MB has problem to power the fx8350 with low VRMS, that will cause the VRMs section overheat. 2) Or buy other MB, like ga-970-ud3p, MSI 970 GAMING, etc.
That board has a poor power and thermal design. I wouldn't be stressing my CPU on it.
