Overnight Computer Heating problems

Last Saturday my computer had been working perfectly fine, all processors below 70 degrees and little to no problems with my computer. The day after (last Sunday) I open up my computer and it suddenly made a consistent buzzing sound and began to overheat almost immediately upon opening google chrome or any video games. I had not changed anything overnight but I do go on unsafe sites (i.e. 4chan).
I applied thermal solution but the problem is still there

More about overnight computer heating problems
  1. By overnight heating problems i meant that the computer got heating problems suddenly the next day not that i left it on overnight.
  2. Are you using the stock cooler? If so, they do not cool those hot i7 chips well and they have a push pin system that could come undone. Make sure to open your case and check that all the 4 white plastic pins are pushed in all the way. Use something like CPUID Hardware Monitor to check the temps for everything. Regarding overheating, if you are running at stock then it should be fairly easy to determine what's causing it just by giving your rig a thorough inspection.
  3. Sorry, I meant to say black push pins.
