Overheated CPU

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So quite a while ago, I played Overwatch but my CPU fan wasn't running due to the fan being stuck and the CPU got very hot and shutdown the whole PC... It booted with no problem after it cooled however and ran fine...

 

I recently ran a benchmark however and found that my i5 4590 performs slightly less  than other i5 4590...

 

Is the problem due to my CPU getting hot and shutting itself down and possibly damaging my CPU?

is it an aftermarket cpu cooler or the stock one, sounds like its just not boosting to the max, nothing to worry about

It's a stock Intel cooler... Is it worth upgrading although I can't overclock?

you'll see a very slight improvement as you can run at max clock all the time, but unless you want to upgrade due to noise as well i would say it isn't worth it
