I bought a pc one years ago.I have warranty on it.
If i play games like BF4,Cod Ghosts my processor heat goes up in skies (200°) and the framerate of game drops down for 10 second.(Example from 40 FPS to 10-15 FPS). And this replays in every 1 or 2 minutes...

My specs is:
ATX 500W PSU
MSI AMD HD 7770
FX-6100
8 GB RAM
MSI 760GM-P23 (FX)

Today I cleaned cpu fan but it not solved the problem...Just heats up now bit slower...

Should thermal paste solve my problem?

Newest bios and drivers installed...

Ya new paste should help out. But if you havnt already, go buy a aftermarket cooler. The fx chips get really hot on stock coolers. My 6300 got to just about 70 degrees on the stock cooler after runing p95 for like 5 min, bought a new cooler and bam droped me down to like 45 after 2 hours of p95

If you are telling me that you didn't apply thermal paste, then IT IS A REQUIREMENT. If you did apply thermal paste then maybe:
A) Your Power supply does not support the wattage required for you CPU.
B) Your motherboard does not support the amount of cores.
PLEASE APPLY THERMAL PASTE. Computers, custom or stock always have thermal paste applied. Without it, computer components will be damaged.

holy crap turn it off put new thermal paste on it before you use it again. make sure you clean all of the old stuff off, just a pea sized dab is all you need, and try not to move the heatsink aroud as your trying to mout it.
Core temp should NEVER go over 65, and 62 is concidered the max safe temp.

i still think you should reapply paste because you socket temp looks fairly accurate just high most likly cause the cpu itself is so high at the core so heat travels to the socket. Now if the paste is no good theres no way of cooling it cause its not disapaiting the heat to the heatsink for the fan to cool it down.

You have to replace paste anyways when you upgrade cooler, so yes a aftermarket cooler would help alot. You could still run the stock cooler if you dont plan on overclocking, you just have to repaste it.
