My PC just crashed, restarted and said "CPU Temperature to high". (83C)

Once after cleaning my machine out, the compressor air actually loosened the cable to the CPU fan. I never noticed because it was working when it laid on its side, but didn't once standing up.
I managed to play a game for a few minutes then my computer turned off.
That's when I saw the fan wasn't spinning. I pushed on the power cable into the board and it started spinning immediately.

Software reports that the fan is spinning but I'll make sure it's all seated properly.

Did you remove your heatsink when you cleaned it? If so you would have to re-apply thermal paste.

I didnt remove it. Should i re-apply the paste anyway? Im moving everything to a new case tommorow, so i could probably do it then. How do i remove the old one?

The fan is spinning and its seated properly. Just tried Batman: AO. CPU reached 94C

Check your heatsink and clean it. You may need to re-apply your thermal paste. make sure the CPU fan is running when the PC is on and isn't slowing, and the back fans as well. The fan may be slowing or even stopping during use. I had that happen to me before.

I had an issue similar to that and reapplying the thermal paste fixed it. Assuming the fan is spinning and not completely choked by dust, try new paste.
