Computer temp solve?

I had recently taken an air hose and blown my PC out to get dust out. My comnputer is running at temps unlike before when i launch a game that doesnt even require that much power(81C). I have a gaming rig:

ASUS G11CD(upgraded)

I7-6700k

GTX 1060 6GBVram

16GB ram

    Yeah, the best thing you can do is repaste the CPU and if the GPU is running hot then repaste that too. You'll need to clean up the old compound first, then repaste. I recommend using 90% or better rubbing alcohol for cleaning and MX-4 paste. Designer Thermal Pastes like Kryonaut is double the price of MX-4 and it only performs 1c better.

    Your CPU cooler was disturbed & needs to be reinstalled.
