I recently started having problems with my CPU running hot. It used to idle at around 20C, and now idles at around 40C. Even doing moderate gaming, AMD Overdrive and CPUID HWMonitor show my temperature running into the high 60s. The only thing that's changed recently is that I installed two new hard drives. Everything else the same. Is it possible that my liquid cooler or thermal paste suddenly went south? Looking for ideas on where to start to fix this. Built this rig last November, never had a problem until this week, and noticed it because I had only ever heard the radiator fans kick into high gear a few times while stress testing. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
