This is my first build. I wanted to overclock for gaming, but when i ran prime95 on stock settings, it hit 65 degrees within 5 minutes on blend. My board is an asrock 970 Extreme3. I have reseated the hyper 101 at least 4 times since i got it last week, applying new thermal paste every time, and still it cant keep cool. I dont know if I dont have enough case fans or what. Im sure i could use more, but i thought it would be enough for stock at least. I have two 80mm fans and one 120, and have read on the proper way to have circulation as well. I just dont know what to do at this point. If anyone could point me in a direction i would appreciate it.
