Please Help!!! i5 3570k build slows down.

4 month old 3570k build is started to slowdown recently. I am not sure why. It is even having trouble running 2 tabs on Google Chrome or Firefox and playing Team Fortress 2. Nothing is over clocked.


Specs' are

i5 3570k
Corsair CX500
Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo
AsRock extreme 4 z77
Gigabyte Gtx 650 ti 2gb
Corsair Vengence 8gb
Lite-on DVD-CD
Some random Toshiba 1tb hard drive

This problem would happen in Windows 7 and Linux Mint. When only in the bios the temps would be 99.0-99.5 C. Anyone have any ideas? Please help.

    Take your cooler and CPU out, and put them back in. Make sure you apply a grain of rice sized drop of thermal paste on top of the cpu.
  2. And make sure you clean the processor's IHS and the heatsink with ispopropyl alcohol and a lint-free cloth/rag/etc.
  3. What do you mean by the processor's IHS?
  4. The metal on the processor is called the Integrated Heat Spreader.
