    I think there might be something wrong with the sensors. -27c min temp?

    Is it a pre-built computer or did you build it yourself?

    I had a lot of incorrect readings on my old Dell PC. I had motherboard temps of -100c.

    Overheated components will begin to throttle themselves, so yea it can result in slower performance.

    In cpu-z it shows your running at 1995mhz. With the temps your posting id imagine your pc always runs at that speed and never goes up to the 3Ghz it should.

    Yeah but its supposed to go up to 3Ghz when you do something like play a game. But in your case id think it wouldnt or at least wouldnt stay there for long as your so close to max temp already that it would throttle your performance so as to avoid damaging the cpu, getting blue screens of death, crashes etc.

    @stew: There were too much dust stroms in my city.
    See here Saudi Arabia’s Giant Sandstorm | Shareordie

    After this strom i didnt clean my pc. So cleaning pc will solve sensor problems?

    WOW. If i was you id move .

    But anyway you should clean out your pc just to make sure. Make sure to remove all dust from fans, heatsinks, the motherboard etc.

    I dont think all your sensors have gone bad, but clean the pc and if you know how to then you should probably re-apply thermal paste to the cpu and install the heatsink and fan.

    Make sure to route all cables as neatly away as possible as well and if possible install more fans.
