CPU is heated in games

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Desktop PC 880-p0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. Product number 2BW85EA#ACB Serial number [edit] CPU

Temperature in games varies from 77 to 85 degrees. The computer starts making noise. This has not been observed before. And this is when hyper threading is disabled. With hyper threading enabled, overheating and throttling starts. Tell me what to do?

@Nido_Alvaren , welcome to the forum.


If you haven't done so lately, it would be a good time to give the computer a thorough cleaning inside of the case.  You should make certain that you clean the fan blade completely.  The fans can be impaired if there is a build-up of dust on the blades.  Also, clean the CPU cooler.  Since the heating problem sounds like it has recently started, this could be the solution.
