CPU load temps increase

Hello,I have a AMD x4 phenom 965 with its stock cooler installed.

Before I would get 37-38C idle temps and when playing games etc it would go up to around 45-50C.

But these past 2 days when I play games the temps increases to 60-61C straight away. If it was a dust/airflow problem than wouldn't the idle temps change aswell, the idle temps are still 37-38C.

The games themselves seem to be running at higher rates aswell. Before it was 30-40% but now its 100%. I haven't done anything different (that I can remember anyway)

Thanks

  1. It could still be dust. check any filters etc. My PC doesn't get much warmer at idle when clogged up but can get bad under load.
