Besides the information Sylvia provided in the other thread, it is good idea to consider if something changed in your system because of the lower temperature readings you got in the past.
It is possible that the fan has accumulated some dust and needs cleaning. The thermal interface material (thermal paste) underneath the heatsink may need to be replaced or the heatsink itself is not properly attached to the motherboard.
Processor temperature issues are usually caused by improper fan/heatsink integration or its failure. When properly installed, the heatsink should not wiggle or shake if you attempt to move it; the pins should not come up if you try to pull them up.
It is recommended to clean the fan, check its speed (RPM), and make sure there are no obstructions or noises. The fan should be connected to the motherboard’s CPU fan header. Please refer to the following links:
- Desktop — Processor installation video for the LGA1155 and LGA1156 sockets
- Desktop — Resetting boxed processor fan-heatsink fasteners/pushpins
You may monitor the temperature from the BIOS or using the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool available in the link below. We cannot guarantee that other monitoring software tools will provide a correct temperature reading.
