  1. well just recently my cpu has been hitting the over temperature levels (60-70) and i realized my cool and quiet has been disabled so i went and reenabled it and was fine again for awhile but when i played a game it went crazy so i checked my ASUS probe and apparently the temperature rose to the 60s again so im wondering what the problem would be .. i have a Video Cooling: AlienIceā„¢ Video Cooling System and several other fans on my comp for a total of 4 fans and yet im still hitting over temperature levels ... so im curious on what i should do .. is it cause my fans are dirty .. someone recommended trying to clean them .. whats the safest way to clean them without damaging anything

    hello, those temps are very high, and dust can cuase that, the best way to clean it is to go to a computer store and pick up a can of air and b\blow that dust out

    good luck
