My CPU is sitting on 30-40 degrees on idle (which is pretty high I think) But as soon as I start playing music or something it'll rise to at least 60-70. If I start playing a game My CPU will throttle me and I can barely move my mouse. On the menu! My GPU temps haven't even gone past 35 degrees because the CPU just get's too hot or the usage is too high.
I though it might have been the way I installed the CPU cooler so I took it off and re applied thermal paste (Arctic Silver 5) and put it back on. I got around 3-5 degrees cooler with the new paste but it's still slowing down a lot.
I'm not sure what to do. Any advice would be appreciated.
