  1. CPU: AMD FX-8370 (4.5Ghz - stable; up until recently)
    CPU COOLER: Air - bequiet! Dark Rock 3 CPU during stress temps are 60-64*
    GPU: EVGA GTX Titan X - SC Model (Prolimatech Black MK-26 VGA Cooler)
    MEM: CORSAIR Vengeance 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10
    MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 R5
    SSD: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III x2 For RAID 0 setup
    OS: Windows 10
    MONITOR: Samsung S34E790C - 34-Inch Curved WQHD Cinema Wide (3440 x 1440)

    So in the cpu description I have annotated; until recently. By that I mean I am getting crashes and errors in the logs:

    Reported by component: Processor Core Error Source: Corrected Machine Check Error Type: Cache Hierarchy Error Processor APIC ID: 6

    From what I read 65C is max temp on the CPU and 72 on the socket so 64C is pushing it. A lot of third-party programs have a hard time giving you accurate temperature read-outs on AMD CPU's.28-40C is normal . Make sure no dust build up in heat sink.Make sure your heat sink is seated properly and thermal paste is good. Your CPU cooler is rated for 250 watts so it should be good. Saw some post about not having all core enabled was making his run hot, see this to check
