I have never cleaned a pc before and I did some YouTube videos, Forums, etc. When I came over the fear of breaking my pc by cleaning it with compressed air. This was the first time I ever “cleaned” a pc. I decided to take off the cpu fan, and spray it with compressed air. I put everything back to place after a few struggles.

I turned on my pc and checked my temperatures, my gpu and everything was working great. The only issue is, my cpu is hitting around the 90 degree zone. I got very worried and turned off the pc immediately. This is my first prebuilt pc that I just got 4-5 months ago, and I would be very sad and dumb to have this pc to a waste. Please help, thank you.

I took off the fan, I didn’t add any new thermal paste. I made sure I plugged the pins back in, When I started the pc it was spinning louder than it was before. I took the whole heatsink part off. sorry for the lack of information.
