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)

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.
