Ok, I occasionally run CPU intensive programs, so fans were running at full speed... but then I didn't realize my Enermax AIO pump failed and the CPU temp had been 77-95c for a week until I noticed things had slowed down and fans were still running at full speed even after I closed all of the programs. Is this going to damage the CPU? I replaced the cooler with Cooler master AIO TR4 edition, but the idle is 47-60c, room temp is 28c. Is this normal? Idle used to be around 36-42c, I'm kind of worry that my cpu is damaged.
