Default Processor started overheating

Just recently my cpu has been getting too hot and shutting itself down, it doesnt do it very often just now and then, sualy applying new gel seems to solve it, it does seem to eat it away quite quickly, whenever I take out the cpu to regel the HS there seems to be no gel shouldnt be doing this should it?

the tempature i just saw was 61 celsius and thats after i switched it back on and went into HW Monitoring, so its obviously hitting 80 ish and shutting my processor dead?

what kind of paste are you using?

and what heatsink are you using aswell.
the paste can possibly dry up if the heatsink isnt "tight" on the cpu.

other than that, i cannot help.

good luck.
