Hi!
As a CPU I have an AMD FX-8350 on a MSI 990FXA-GD80 motherboard. My graphics card is a MSI NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 770 OC.
I was doing some cable management and now my case has more airflow. But after that, when I started my computer again, and went to play some DayZ, my FPS dropped to 15-20 when it was before the management at about 40-50. Also I checked my CPU load was much higher than before. I checked my temperatures with Open Hardware Monitor and it was stuck 206 celcius!!!
Used CoreTemp after that and the same thing, 206 C! My CPU cooler is an Antec Kühler H2O 620
My Battlefield 4 FPS also dropped from 50-60 to 20-25.

Do you have any idea what is causing this?

my guess is your fan is not longer pluged into the mobo, or the pump isn't circulating, but I don't believe its at 206c... it would have shut itself down wayyyyy before that.

It can't really be 206 C. It's stuck there and the temperature doesn't change at all. Can the sensor get damaged somehow or what?
