I'd redo the paste if it has been a while since it was first done.

When you use the compressor at work bud be sure you hold the fan fins from spinning too fast as they can fracture due to age brittleness.
Blow thru the psu grills at the back too but also holding the fan fins.
Start with the psu
then the cooler rad and heatsink fins
then blow out the whole case.
Also whilst you have it a work take any front cover filters out too and blow them out.

All the filters are clear bizarrely. The dust just decided to have a party in the radiator! I’ll be replacing the paste tomorrow!

New paste has made a massive difference. Now running at a steady 50 degrees when gaming and 30 at idle.

If anyone wants to replace their paste, use this https://www.amazon.co.uk/Arctic-Silver- ... B000BKP306 to clean the old stuff off. :D
