From few weeks my computer is working very slow i.eLagging very badly.No viruses detected then also i had formated the PC,but it was useless.Even if i open 2 small application at a time the C.P.U starts showing 100% usage and start lagging(work really very slow).Then i downloaded a application SpeedFan which showed temp of CPU 93 C.I applied thermal paste which was useless.Yesterday i thought that appln might be wrong so i watch the temp in BIOS which also showed me 88-93 C.Pls tell me reason abt such high temp and solution to my problem which is making my PC very slow .I've inserted img below.

First, I would Enable the warnings. It looks like one or more of your cooling components are failing.

Did you put in the CPU and chassis fans yourself, or did they come preinstalled from Gigabyte?

Thanks for your reply.

As you had asked , I got my PC assembled from a guy who works Comp repairing,Assemling etc.

The system fan shows that it's not plugged in - 0 RPM. I'd call the guy who built this first, and make sure he installed the right heatsink/fan combo for both the processor, and the chassis.

"System fan" is the fan inside the chassis. It's supposed to be spinning.

Really Sorry for late Reply !

I was busy in college 4 submission of files etc..

In my System there is only one fan i.e CPU FAN. I think it is not related with system fan because it was working fine till now as i didnt added any component.

Your computer case (chassis) doesn't have any fans installed, besides one CPU fan?

That is bad news, my friend.

Both your processor and your motherboard are in danger of being damaged, without proper fan usage.

I highly encourage you to talk to whomever built your system, as it does not sound like a proper build to me.

It has been running until now, but every time you use it, there is a little more heat damage, until it gets serious problems.

I would not recommend running this without a fan chassis, possibly two depending on how bad off it is.

CPU fan speed looks fine. It's the chassis / system fan that is the problem.
