Hi Lately I have noticed that when I play games on my pc the fan starts running at higher speeds and it sounds like my pc is in overdrive. The GPU Temp has also risen to about 78°C when it use to only get to 65°C.

I have installed a second fan in the front of the case to suck air in and blow over components. I have PC Wizzard installed and it tells me the following under the temp area:

Processor Temperature : 30 °C
Processor Temperature (Diode) : 30 °C
Mainboard Temperature : 25 °C
Power/Aux Temperature : 70 °C (Is this to high?)

Chassis Fan : 4440 rpm (seen it at 4800 rpm)
Power/Aux Fan : 2109 rpm

Is there any thing to do ie. oil fans? Could it be my power supply?

Thanks in advance.

When was the last time you dusted, and what does your cabling system look like?

When I added my new RAM about 2 weeks ago I did a lazy dust and just blew into the box, nothing major.

Whats the best way as i don't want to use a cloth or duster that creates static.
