Had this rig for a few years now. It has an i7 and this morning after installing an OS it my ASUS bios warned me of high CPU temps. I hit F1 and continued into the OS and installed speed fan and indeed my CPU temps are in the 90-100C range.
Recently I had a GFX card fan go bad so I replaced my card and installed a temp monitoring app to watch temps and all is well.
I am just curious what the possible causes could be for my cpu starting to run hot all of the sudden.
After doing some searches, people say the thermal grease can bake to nice and crispy over time between your heat sink and cpu.
The cpu fan seems fine.
I blew everything with compressed air.
I have a spacious full atx case with tons of fans and my temps previously were really good....
The mystery begins any good lead ideas for me to follow up?
