well..i've found that my cpu temps goes over than 80c so when i checked the thermal paste..i found that it should be replaced..which i did by an arctic MX-4 and when i tried testing the cpu again after applying the new thermal paste and the temp went over 90c again...i don't know if i missed up applying the thermal paste?or there is another problem causing the cpu to overheat? i also found that the cpu load while i am playing is 85-100% while the GPU is 35-40%
PC specs:
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K(not overclocked)

GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1660 6GB OC(not over-clocked)

Motherboard: Intel DZ77RE-75K

Ram: kingston 16GB

Cpu temp:
idle: 45-60
full load:75-93

sorry for being late..but i was really busy..i've tried increasing the fan speeds and i actually noticed some difference my cpu new doesn't exceeds 75c on full load ( usually 70c)i get 70-75 while i am playing apex legends..and the idle temp is 53c
i don't know if that is ok or there is still a problem?also what is the average temp for my cpu (core i-7 3770k not over-clocked)on idle and on full load?thanks in advance
