Built this pc in winter and had no problem but now thats summer i can see the stock heatsink wont do it (temps on load go over 65c). What do you recommend?. Im not OC (i think my cpu is locked to begin with) so i dont need that much but where i live ambience temp is around 46c. Also, its needed to get a better case fan too or is not important?.

FX CPUs are all unlocked.
Hyper 212Evo.

Damn man. Hottest it gets here is 37C-38C, and I think THAT is unbearable.

Since the ambient temp gets that high I would suggest a Noctua NH-D14 or maybe a closed loop liquid cooler.
