AMD 8350 overheating ussue?

205 3
Hello everyone.

I have a issue with my basic gaming pc overheating and crashing never blue screens.

Specs are as follows..

Cpu - AMD 8350 black edition
Motherboard -
Gigabyte GA-990X-Gaming SLI Socket AM3+ ATX Motherboard
Psu - Corsair 700w
Ram - basic sticks from old pc 12gg
Gpu - gtx 780ti

Running os on a ssd
Games on a hdd
And 2 other hdd for storage

Cpu cooler - Corsair hydro H50.

When gaming the pc is just crashing and pumping out a lot of hot air. I've checked all my fans they are all working. Only happened in past few months.

Anyone have any information on this. I've read online these mobos are notorious for heat problems.

Cheers Adam.

When was last time you cleaned lint and dust out of fans and cooler?
How old is H50?
When was last time you cleaned and reseated waterblock on CPU with new TIM?

Are you sure the radiator is heating up? CLC pump failure is quite common on CLCs after 2 or 3 years .. and when pump fails there is no coolant transfer so no cooling.
