Hey guys, Ive checked multiple temperature programs including SpeedFan, Ive checked my BIOS aswell, and everything says my CPU is at 130 celsius. All of my games get framerate drops even with my brand new EVGA GTX 970 superclocked acx 2.0. The framerate drops always occur when Im in a open area in a game, so I believe it is the cpu. Ive applied new thermal paste aswell, but to no avail. Oh, and 130 celsius is when Im idling. Please help!

No. Its not very strong but the heatsink is cold when the pc is running. I tested that by removing the heatsink turning on the computer briefly and I felt it decrease in temp.
