So I’ve had my pc for a couple of years now and never had an overheating issue, it usually ran at 60-70 degrees during games. But a couple of days ago it suddenly shot to 95 degrees out of nowhere and hasn’t changed since, causing my games to run at like 30 frames. I’ve dusted the pc but nothing has changed, I don’t think it’s anything to do with the thermal paste either tho as it wouldn’t be so sudden. I’ve ran a full scan on malware bytes too and “quarantined” the threats but it’s still the same :/ any help?
