Not to long ago I had no problem playing games with really low temps but now I just get high temps playing the most simplistic of games. Im using Open Hardware Monitor to monitor my temps and im getting up to 80 C aftermabey 30 minutes of Day of Imfamy. Is this a faulty Motherboard or something I can fix on my own. Thanks!

Splendid
80c for what?
The motherboard, cpu?

A faulty mobo is very unlikely to cause high temps for anything.
If it's the cpu that's hot, I'd check fans and heatsink. Make sure they're all working and seated properly.
