What anti virus you using?

eset smart security im currently scanning for any virus



Make sure to uninstall some unwanted programs in the Programs and Features window (Control Panel).

Clean your History and Registry using Ccleaner:

Download, Install and run a scan of Malwarebytes:

Could be a nasty malware.
Might as well just go into safe-mode and then scan for viruses.
Use malwarebytes as well.

Whats the cpu temp though? - per bios/uefi.

No. Hitting 80C is not normal at all! At those temperatures, your CPU likely downclocked itself.
It most definitely might be the reason why your PC is slowing down. Check the heatsink for your CPU. Try re-seating it.

EDIT: Realized that you said CPUTIN. Might be a false read, thought it doesn't answer why your PC slowed down. Check actual core temperatures like i7Baby said, though the BIOS.

Of course not. As you can see when you go over 60% that ain't normal already. It's OVERHEATING just like mine which 2 cores goes 80%-99% and it slows my F-king PC. Are you using Fans or Watercooling? If fans, check if it is cooling your PC that much. Did you try the other 3 solutions that I recommended?

Well maybe that's your problem. Your cpu should be 35C max on idle and 50C max gaming.

Post your build.

cpu? psu? mobo? cpu cooler? Vcore? Fan Speed?

Blow your case out - especially fans, filters and coolers. Up your cpu fan speed

Yep. Definitely a little too hot.

fan speed and vcore OK

Can you download HWInfo and run Sensors then post the results? - usually 3 screenshots in TinyPic or similar. That'll give a better picture how your hardware is behaving.

Your power supply and graphics card are OK

But your cpu is running at 74.5C - way too hot.

Get it much cooler -

1. Blow your case out - especially fans, filters and coolers. (as I said above)

if that doesn't get the temps down to 35C idle, 50C gaming then
2. Re-seat the cpu cooler -
Remove the fan and cooler.
use isopropyl alcohol to clean the old thermal paste from the top of the cpu and bottom of the cooler.
put a pea size drop of new Artcic Silver 5 thermal past on the centre of the cpu. Put the cooler back on,. reconnect the fan.

if that doesn't get the temps down to 35C idle, 50C gaming then get a new cooler eg Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo

I cleared cpu with alcohol but didnt apply arctic silver on the cpu.Temperature is now around 45c, pc is fast again and frame rate is even better

You need to use new thermal paste.

Best solution

You will need to put the Thermal Paste as it is intended to increase the thermal conductivity between the surfaces of both the CPU heatspreader and the heatsink itself. It attempts to compensate for irregularities between the two surfaces - tiny microscopic bumps or ridges which may hinder proper thermal conductivity between the two surfaces. The heatsink is obviously designed to dissipate heat from the CPU itself so the better the contact between the CPU and the heatsink the more heat will be dissipated and the cooler the CPU.

In short, it will surely burn your CPU if you do not put Thermal Paste.

of course it's necessary. It gives better heat conduction to get heat away from the cpu and keep it cooler. Arctic Silver 5 is very good thermal paste.

^That. It is essential to use thermal paste before keeping on the heatsink. Otherwise your current success will rapidly move unto failure again soon.

Okay i just applied paste(spire) because there is no arctic silver in my country and temperature is around 70c again...

I have a feeling some unwanted programs are lingering on your PC. Can you show us the Contents of your Programs and Features window so I can check if you have some programs to uninstall. Also, did you try Ccleaner and Malwarebytes?

Have you cleaned your PC? Try to remove the Side panels of your PC Case and check the temp.
