  • The computer slows down when having more than 50% CPU load for more than half a minute
  • The computer randomly freezes while at stock settings for everything
  • I check temperatures and discover that the CPU is at 70 degrees C
  • I dust PC
  • Temperatures still high
  • I set fans to maximum speed, and temperatures are still high
  • I downclock the CPU to 60% of its original speed, and it still hovers around 60 degrees C at full load
Do you think I need to replace this CPU? I think it might be breaking...
