Temps Extremely high on 8350

I recently bought Bioshock Infinite for my pc. After playing it at max (which should be possible with my 770 and 8350) for 2 hours or so, I turned off the game to see what temps I should have. I expected around mid 50's and max around 63C with my Hyper Evo 212 and around max 74C for my gpu, (which is the max I have ever seen it during my playthrough of Trine 2 Maxed) but I was displeased and a bit frightened to see my CPU in the mid 60's and the max temp at 74C along with my GPU hitting 80C and sitting somewhere in the mid 70's. I could always turn down the settings, but I still want to know what's causing it. I also recently reset my cpu cooler, which lowered the temps, so that's not the problem

If it only happens after extended periods of gaming it is most likely lack of air flow in your case. I have toggle fans on my case and this happens after a couple of hours if i dont turn them on. I also have a space heater for a gpu.

The case has one big intake and two 120mm outtake. Do you think it's because of the gpu throwing heat at the CPU?

It throws heat everywhere unless it is reference. The reference 780ti will help a lot because it blows the heat out the back of the case.

I'm thinking about getting a super clocked 780 TI and hopefully being able to overclock (something my 770 won't let me do)

How many case fans do you have for intake and exhaust?

I have two outtake and one intake, although half the case is blocked off because the gpu is so long

Switch one to the front and put it as an intake. Having 2 as outtake is choking the air out of the case instead of cooling it. If you have 2 as intake it will force air to cool the case and will always find a way out through the back.

My case doesn't really allow that (zalman z11) maybe I need a new case? I'm getting a 780 ti (maybe reference to lower temps)

Does your psu cover the bottom fan placement because if it doesn't you can use that as an intake.

I might be able to flip the psu over, would it really help temps?
