Idle temps going berserk

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A week ago my idle temps ran in the lower 30s and for the past couple of days, I'm idling in the upper 40s. I haven't done anything to change the setup. All fans are spinning properly. Heatsink fins are not clogged with dust. Task manager is showing low CPU usage. What's going on here? Is it time to replace the AS5? It's only been 3 months!

Well if your Room temps have gone up due to a summer season then this is the reason why otherwise the only other Explanation is your thermal compound and you may wish to reapply it.
