    Re: Is my pc overheating?

    Have you got the latest graphics drivers ready to install? (latest seem to be 2016..)
    https://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/no....2.1-sep20.exe

    Also Have you used DDU to uninstall your old AMD drivers
    https://www.guru3d.com/files-details...-download.html

    And also is WOW on the SSD? also do you have a lot of utility's running in the background?

    Maybe your internet may effect it too?

    Just a thought, have you checked CPU/GPU utilisation graphs while you're playing? They're not a sure way of telling where the problem lies but it can be a start e.g. if GPU utilisation is usually low then hits 100% during a raid you have some idea. Same with CPU but you'd have to check core loading rather than CPU total.

    I've no idea how demanding WoW is so I wouldn't know whether CPU/GPU is likely in your case off the top of my head.

    Thats a good idea there, might help satsuma get to the bottom of the problem..

    It is pretty demanding, but hammers CPU GPU and also when raiding requires a decent network connection.

    When I was playing the last expansion an R7 360 was struggling and I wouldn't want to raid with it. I think that is faster than what the OP has. Minimum requirements is a 2GB 7850, recommended an R9 280. My son plays it OK with an R9 285 2GB.

    Re: Is my pc overheating?

    I ordered a rx 580 but if there's not much improvement i'm thinking about upgrading cpu/ram/mobo, trying to save a little money and thinking about using the current CPU cooling - would buying this give me the brackets i need for current cpu sockets?
