My PC has started to heat up more then usual. The CPU goes up to about 70c when playing games like overwatch or games like that in general and its around 40c when idle (using internet). Would anybody know what it could be? I have a corsair H60 liquid cooling and i just recently replaced the thermal paste. My gpu also spikes around 55-60c when gaming and 26c when idle.

Hi Andrew and Welcome to PCHF :)

What graphics card do you have? How many fans do you have on your chassis? The more information the better :)

I have a Nvidia GeForce gtx770 and I have 2 fans in front of chassis and 2 on top. The ones in front are blowing cold air in and the top ones are blowing out.

Please provide your pc spec's and your psu spec's. Do you keep the inside of your pc clean from dust?

EDIT: With speedfan please post the voltages after it has ran for a while..maybe 30 minutes.
