Okay so I have a problem with my temperature when I'm idle doing nothing on the computer I just have maybe one or two tabs open and Spotify my temp is at like 83c and I'm pretty when I'm gaming it's going up to like 95 And it's funny because I just bought two case fans thinking that would help decrease temperature but I guess not a week or two ago I unplugged my computer I brought it outside and I used compressed air to get all the dust out and I thought that help but I guess not I really don't know what to do here is it my cable management is it thermal paste wearing off do I need more thermal paste I really don't want to have to redo that but if I have to i will. Is it my GPU failing I just know that at idle it should be around 40 to 50. And at load it should be around 70-80 Max if you have any suggestions let me know I would love to not have 90c... Thanks
