Maybe it's just my imagination but I swear when I use to start my computer I could hear the nice sound of the fans kicking on(they were somewhat loud, but not crazy loud). A few days ago I went to start my PC and it was silent but the computer still turned on fine. I can see somewhat inside the case so I checked the graphics card fan and the PSU fan - they seem to be working fine. I also notice while playing a game I normally do that my FPS is very jumpy where it use to not be. What can be the cause of this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

one more ,make sure the processor[CPU] fan is working and make sure all fans clear of dust buildup

Opened the computer case - All internal fans are working(Including the processor). Any more suggestions? Thanks.

(PS. I also spray dusted the inside of the PC. Fans and all. Still the same problems.)

I'm not too safe about touching it but SpeedFan is reading temperatures of 60-61 while idle and spiking up to 68-70 when I'm playing the game I normally do. Is that too hot?(That's for the graphics card. The core is only reading 40)I think the problem may be the graphics card.
