Hey everyone,
I'm having an issue that someone else just posted on here as well though with different hardware. My CPU's temp started spiking while idle about 2 weeks ago and it's gotten progressively worse. I've done everything I possibly could to troubleshot but alas nothing has worked.

Specs:
Intel i7 6700K
Corsair H100i GTX
Asus z170-A
GTX 970
Gskill Ripjaws V series 16Gb 3200 (2x8)
Corsair RM650 Gold modular
Samsung 750 EVO SSD
1TB Seagate HDD
NZXT Phantom 530 Case
3440x1440 Ultrawide LG Monitor

Things I've done:
-dust and clean everything
-reapply thermal paste and reseat cooler
-clean install of windows 10
-revert to previous build of windows 10
-set max voltage to 1.350

At this point I don't know what to do and even the simplest of tasks such as opening a chrome browser causes the temps to spike 80+. I used to be able to run overwatch at high settings and now i can barely run it at medium without the cpu hitting 100 degrees.

Someone said my cpu is a dead boi? is this true?
If this is the case then I don't really have the money to buy something completely new but would it be worth upgrading the cpu, mobo, and aio to :

mis MPG x570 gaming edge wifi mobo
amd ryzen 3700x
noctua d15

All help appreciated.

P.S. If upgraded those parts would my gpu bottleneck the system?
I do some gaming along with photoshop and lightroom use.

Max voltage for your CPU is at 1.350v?!?!? If so, bring that back down to 1.25~1.3, if you're not overclocking. Which BIOS version are you currently on for your motherboard? Which version of Windows 10 are you on?

sorry it was so late last night when I posted this that I forgot to elaborate. It’s running at stock speed and I messed with the voltage from 1.2-1.35 but none of it worked based on a video I saw of a guy with the same issue.
Running latest BIOS 3802 and version 1903 of windows 10
