Reasons for Computer Overheating issues
The major reasons for processor overheats are :
1. CPU fan failed to work
2. Heat sink issue
3. Dust inside the cabinet
4. Flow of hot air from cabinet blocked
5. PC Overclocking
If there is any heat related issues happen in your computer, at first place we should check your cabinet fan and processor fan. If the fans in your computer cabinet is not working properly, it can increase the temperature inside the CPU.
Another reason is heat sink may be not doing its job properly. Heat sink is the device which is designed to remove over heat from processor to surrounding air and keep the processor cool. The dust inside the cabinet can indirectly increase the temperature inside your computer cabinet. It can reduce the speed and functionality of your computer fan.
Another major reason for CPU overheating is the denial of free flow of hot air from your computer cabinet. This can increase the temperature inside your computer cabinet. PC overclocking too can increase the temperature produced by your CPU.
Solutions to avoid PC overheating issues
The first step we should do is to check whether the fans in your cabinet are working properly or not. If there is any issue with fans, change the fan immediately. Changing heat sink and revert back overclocking are other options to reduce computer overheating. Always make sure that hot air flow from your computer is not blocked by surrounding materials. If there is any dust inside your cabinet, clean that.
