Default Hardware Questions

Hello I recently bought a pc with the following specs:
CPU: AMD FX 6300 HexaCore 6 x 3.5 GHz - 4 GHz Turbo
Mainboard: Biostar A960Dplus AM3+
Graphics card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 2048 MB DDR5 (VGA, DVI, HDMI Anschluss)
Only one CPU cooler

During some really hot periodes my pc had reallly annoying lag spikes occurring often after I played for a little while...
Does someone know why this kepps happening ?
Thanks in Advance.

Check your silver. If it's not covering enough, (I assume you're in a spot with good airflow) or the mix was bad, it won't be as effective, and you may have to re-apply some better stuff. Alcohol wipes will get it off of the heat sink and processor fairly easily, and you don't need a whole lot at all, maybe half a grain of rice worth to a whole grain.
