case: Circle Gaming Tower-Phoenix (2 fans in front, 2 in top, 1 in back, all 120mm)


the PC is 4 years old except for GPU(4 months ago). ever since i put the new GPU, PC always runs at a min of 52C, i play small games like CS 1.6, the temp rises to 60C

i have recently cleaned all fans and replaced thermal paste,but still get very high temp

i have tried turning off cores, but it only gave a reduction of 8C-10C


is there any problem with the processor, or should i buy a liquid cooler
