Default Core i5 750 temperature issues


Today, I've decided to clean my case from all the dust that was in it. I had every single piece of the computer removed, cleaned everything, then replaced everything. Before that, I never had a temperature issues, managed to play most games on max setting without problems. Now, everytime I open a game, my cores temperature get to 85C+ , which is way too high. I've read the sticky and made sure everything was in order (I even removed the motherboard to be sure the heatsink was in place correctly). The only thing I'm lacking is thermal paste, which I'll fix tomorrow. But since I didnt had any beforehand, I was wondering what could have caused my CPU to get a good 20-30C since I've cleaned it.

I've got original heatsink ;
Its in place correctly ;
My system isn't overclocked ;
No more dust anywhere ;
Cables are well placed to avoid blocking the airflow.

Any suggestions on where the problem could be?
Thanks a lot!

You NEED thermal paste. Without it, you will go through the roof.

Don't ever run your computer without thermal paste. It helps the CPU make contact with the heat sink so that the heat generated by the CPU can be dissipated better.

I'd recommend getting something like this: - Tuniq TX-2 Cooling Thermal Compound
Core i5 2500K - Asus P67 EVO - Gigabyte GTX 970 - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - 250GB Samsung 840 EVO - Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Mid 2014 Retina MacBook Pro 13.3" - 2.6GHz core i5 - 16GB DDR3 1600MHz - 128GB - OS X El Capitan
Sony PS3 & PS4 500GB || iPhone 6s 64GB iOS 9

Yeah, TX-2 is our favorite around here. Couldn't think of the name..
