Ive got a Gateway PC with I5-3570k processor/Asus P8H77-M pro. The fans been running pretty frequent forever. System never shut down in past 4-5 years, only 2-3 photoshop freezes
due to big files. Finally after a windows update it gave a CPU overheat warning as i discovered this cool-ass Bios thing upon restart. Today I cleaned out the CPU fan and cooler fin thingy which was pretty
lint filled and cakey. Temps before cleaning were 141 farenheit- but after they are still 107. Now shes running quiet and it finally feels like a quad core machine, Photoshop files are horizontally flipped in an instant vs 7-8 seconds. Obviously the Bios is exaggerating the CPU temp, but shouldnt it be more accurate? Will updating BIOS solve the issue? Its a 2012 version. Also....Bios only shows CPU fan. Power fan is marked n/a, but its working. Appreciate your response..
