PC Crashing after fan issue.

Ok, first of all this is a post for a friend so sorry if the info is vague it may take a while for me to figure out. So the whole story is his PC fan on his CPU cooler was making an odd noise, so he opened the PC and took off the fan, WD-40ed and lubed the bearing and put it back on so the fan ran fine. He never took off the metal heat sink, only the fan off of it but it is hard to explain it over text. When he got back on, after playing Fortnite, the PC would crash, maybe quickly maybe after a while. I had him install HW Monitor but it stayed in the 60s (VRMS, CPU and GPU) for an amount of time. (he has an FX-6300 at 4.2ghz turbo which is 100 mhz over the normal turbo). I don't think it could be temps but he didn't check right before it crashed again and he didn't open up HW Monitor again. I honestly don't know what it could be so it'd be a great help if you can well.... help! Thanks in advance.

I would replace your fan. Have you check the CPU temp.

 

Look in BIOS for temp. It may or may not be there also

I feel like i said in there the CPU was running around 60 degrees celcius. Why would I check in BIOS for temp? HW works fine....
