So when i first got my PC it could run pretty much any game on all high graphics and still remain pretty quiet. I have upgraded the graphics card over the life of the PC but not most any game makes the fans run loud and I can't run on High anymore. It's been getting steadily worse and even when I upgraded the graphics card it made little to no change on this factor.(can run higher graphics but then PC gets outragiously loud and hot to the point of self shut off)
I have already cleaned out all the dust, which helps some but there is still significant noise and heat.
Motherboard- Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe (bios up to date)

kingston SSD as main hardrive
Graphics card- GEFORCE GTX 970
The PC is about 5 years old if that helps
