First of all, I'd like to thank you guys for even taking a moment to check this thread. I'm starting to get pretty worried, so I thought I'd see if anybody could help me troubleshoot the problem.
Okay. So, I've had my computer for about two years now. For the first 8 months or so, my computer felt like it ran a little hot, but nothing I worried about too much. After the aforementioned period of time, however, I started to notice my fans getting louder. Way louder. I didn't make the connection until much later, but I also noticed how hot my room would get when my PC was running. Games that would once play flawlessly (more or less) seemed to get annoyingly choppy. Sometimes, though not often (and still not too often), my computer would sometimes just... freeze and I'd be forced to shut down. Upon trying to boot it up, I'd get no POST and a black screen, unless I left it for a few minutes before booting. Touching the side of my computer, I could tell it was because it was overheating because it was REALLY hot to the touch.
Now adays, my computer feels like it gets really hot just while simply idling on the log-in screen. When I try to play even older games (like Lands of Lore on DOSBox, THAT old), there is a noticeable heat increase and performance drop. My computer isn't the best, but it should be able to run a lot of things that it really struggles with.
Is there any easy way of narrowing it down? Could be anything, I'll wager. CPU, GPU, PSU, case, fans... I know it's not dust, because I clean that thing at least once a month.
Attached to this thread is a dxdiag reading, a CPUID hardware monitor reading, and a screenshot of the CPUID hardware monitor screen during which I only have google chrome open (aside from the obvious background programs and such). and I don't know if this helps, but this is the case everything is in: http://www.newegg.ca...N82E16811133094
If more information is needed, just ask and I'll see if I can't do my best to answer the question. Do any of those temperature readings sound... off, to anybody? Under the mobo/TMPIN2, 112 degrees celcius seems... excessive. Although I'm not sure what a normal temperature is for any of these components, nor am I sure how accurate these programs can be.
Anyhow, thanks for reading. Hopefully I can get this figured out with some help.
