I've had this cpu overclocked from 2.1 to 2.6 ghz for about a year now and it has just now started overheating to 80-90 c when playing games. It use to run at a smooth 50-60 c. It's got a stock heatsink on it. I haven't changed anything in the case. I just cleaned the fans and grills of the case a few hours ago and it is still overheating... any ideas?
