E8400 suddenly underperforming

I've had my processor for about a year and until very recently I was very satisfied with it's performance. Last week, I ran a game with which I usually have no trouble at all (constant 40fps), and I found myself lagging horidly (10 fps). I tried other games and I have the same problem with each one! My CPU's score went down from 6.5 (on 10) to 4.8. I also noticed that my CPU's temperature varies from 85°C to 92°C.



In an attempt to fix this, I updated my bios and formatted my computer.


Thanks in advance!
