Recently i discovered a problem with my i5 4460. When i play games or run any cpu demanding application the frequency is locked at 3.19 Ghz ( 3.2 being the base clock, and 3.4 turbo), while it has no problem going over 3.2 on dekstop or using chrome. Does anybody know any fix for this ?

Specs:
-Asus Geforce Gtx 1060 6 Gb
-12 gb 1600 mhz adata ram
-ASRock H81-M VG4 Motherboard
- Intel I5 4460/with Intel stock cooler
-KEEPOUT FX900 PSU
-1 TB HDD
-Intel SSD 520 Series, 120GB

While gaming temps usually stand at 60-67, but never go higher than 70. Anyways i think it's really time to change my 5 years old stock cooler that i have been cleaning from time to time, i think it's not sufficient to maintain good temps anymore.
