    Angry pc over heating not sure what to do

    this just started 2 days ago, if i play i high end game like bf3, moh. the pc will shut down. took me a day to find out it was due to over heating, i haven't done any updates to the os or the bois. on speed fan temperatures are around 62-80c. and core is stuck around 60-68c, it has only once done that due to a wire stopping the fan on the graphics card before playing any game it never went higher then 64c, i check the pc while running all fans are working and nothing is touching them.

    im out of ideas

    Need pc specs, because your temps are 100% in line for a working CPU and GPU to seemingly be unaffected 80c is hot but not performance degrading hot.

    Have you tried leaving the case opened?

    Most of all we need to know if his CPU is Intel or AMD. 62c is around throttle, and 65 is thermal shutdown for AMD Phenom II's if I remember correctly. I can't comment on the newer ones as I have not owned one yet.

    check the bios and set the shutdown point to 85-celsius, on your own risk tho

    open the box, use vacuum-cleaner for it etc. one thing is that your GPU might be overheating and just blanks out or does the computer too shut down
    so you can hear nothing?

    My comp tends to shut down at around 70 degrees and the GPU fan will only be running at about 50%, I have to use EVGA to set the fan to increase speed based on temperature, reaching 100% at around 66 degrees to be safe. The highest I went was 68 degrees at 100% but it was a very hot day, beyond increasing van speed/ventilation I'd just have to lower my settings.

    i'd check your cpu fan. mighta got jostled a little or something. i'd probably apply a new coat of paste as well.

    on top of that, might be time to do some 'spring' cleaning. get an air bottle and start blowing all that dust and linen outta your case.

    i change my power setting from high performance to balance and increase my fan speed to 60 and it fell from 63c to 46-51c quick, but i still think its some thing else

    found the problem open my case to clean, and my cpu fan was off , no idea how but the 3 brackets that are on the motherhood the connects the fan to it are gone on the left side and the right side only one is on there, and the paste stuff that the cpu and the fan connects with is almost gone guess i just need a new cooling fan? i think it a stock cooler[COLOR="red"]
