Hi
My CPU has recently started getting massive temp spikes out of nowhere, i can run for hours under heavy load with a stable 45-50 degrees, and then suddenly under the same load or even under much lower load, it can just spike to 100 degrees, and at times crash my computer due to overheating.

i have a skylake 6600k processor, the pc is close to 4 years old, and has never had anything similar before recently
