Check if your CPU usage is peaking at 100% all the time.. Check in Task Manager for the processes that utilize a large amount of CPU, a screenshot will help.

Congrats on finding the issue. The most important aspect of proper cooling is a solid thermal pathway for heat to be dissipated. Often the culprit is a poor connection between cooling elements, or dried out thermal paste applied between elements of the system.

That is fantastic, good to know you were able to get it fixed. Although do keep an eye on the temps for some time, just to be careful...
