CPU Temperatures very high?

I have a FX 6300 CPU Cooled by an Arctic gt 64 rev (Cheap cooler, what my budget allowed for). Before it used to idle at ~30, and now its idling around 55. Im not quite sure whats causing it. I moved my computer to the basement, which is cooler and thats when it went up. Whats wrong and how can I lower temperatures? Thanks!

  1. Make sure the fan is working properly and that your termal compound hasn't dried up.
  2. What is your case and what kind of fan config do you have? Hows the airflow?
