I recently installed a new GPU, an XFX RX 460 4GB, but now my CPU keeps overheating, I'll turn my PC on and the CPU temps skyrocket... My CPU is an A8-7600, and it's heatsink is clean, along with a working fan, and my PC has 2 other fans that work as well...
I've been trying to fix it, but can't find a way, it also may be helpful to let you guys know my CPU does run at 3.1Ghz normally, and did perfectly fine before this...
