    Since last few days the temperature of my cpu and mobo have risen above 60 degrees
    previously the mobo and cpu would hover around 50 degrees but im not able to find a reason as to why the temperatures have suddenly become so high

    is there any way to diagnose this myself or i need to show this to an expert ?

    Maybe is time to clean your computer cooler and apply some thermal-paste...

    I'd be looking at dust inside your PC cabinet. To be honest, I'm a little surprised your PC runs that hot since the weather indications of your city do not seem to support such temperatures.

    Its all clean..all the fans and interior all are free of dust
    and i just bought thermal paste today and have applied it and the temperatures have dropped by ~10 degrees

    yes firecat thats what m thinking..at present the temperatures are normal and the temperatures are gonna rise now as summer comes
    looks like il have to buy a bigass fan or a water coolant in the next month !

    I'm really not a big fan of liquid cooling because it just scares me to think about what's gonna happen if the liquid leaks one day!

    I think a good fan will do fine in your case.

    Also big and heavy "fancy" collers without proper support manytimes screw the mobos by bending them...
