    4690k Overheating 100c fast!


      I never overclocked my cpu as I never had to. Past month it was crazy, using stock fan btw but never reached past 70c. So I updated my bios recently, and everything else. Now its hitting 100c. I never overclocked anything except for my gpu only recently (3 days ago, which I reverted back to stock) just so I get the fans going cause the cpu is creating unwanted heat. The only thing which I shouldn't probably done, hopefully hasn't voided warranty is loaded xmp profile for ddr3 2400 and enabled turbo 4.0ghz to see if that would help but it hasn't...reverted in minutes. I reset my bios settings to see if that would help and still no. I absulotely no nothing with overclocking and never touched it till it hit 100c. I clean dust regularly and applied thermal paste recently which somehow made it hotter? Everything is placed correctly so I don't know what's the problem.


      I downloaded CPUID HWMonitor, than CPU-Z, Coretemp, MSI Afterburner. Uninstalled everything except for HWM.


      Let me know what I should do please. I've never done stress tests before btw and prefer not to as it'll definately damage my cpu...don't know anything about this stuff so I could be wrong. You guys are the experts =)


      This only happens playing a game btw, but my idle temps are higher than usual so yeah...I'd appreciate if anyone could help me fast. Thanks in advanced
