Hello,

For a while my CPU has been overheating and I'm not sure why. Right now I have only a web browser open and it's idling at 93c. I've cleaned out my fans/cooling system, replaced the thermal paste, but nothing has made even a degree difference (yes cooling is definitely working). Any advice would be appreciated.
