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 65°c). 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 46°c. Also, its needed to get a better case fan too or is not important?.

Damn man. Hottest it gets here is 37°C-38°C, 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.
