Hello guys 2 days later i noticed that my games are running on pretty low fps so i checked temperatures and i saw that 1 core is like 70° and others are around 50 like it should be. Do somebody know what could making that one core so high? I finished pc buid in start of this year and everythink was fine. Iam colling i7 8700k without OC with kraken x72 all fans are on place where they should be so i have no idea what could cause this.

Those temperatures are fine. That cpu will run over 90C without issue. Your problem is with something else.

Please list complete system specifications. What games? What resolution are you gaming at? More info, please. :)

In your component list you neglected to specify the frequency of your RAM and you did not list anything about your CPU cooler or storage. More details please.

How full is your system drive?

As ED said, you can't lose your bookmarks when you are using a web browser. But you do have to know your email password to be able to sign into your gmail account in order for them to be retrieved. Once you sign back into your gmail account and consent to "sync" all that stuff will magically reappear.

20/120 = 16%. To put it another way, your SSD is 86% full. I've always read that once an SSD gets more than 75% full they start to slow down dramatically. This may also be why you are encountering instability. You need to either get a larger system drive or you need to remove some stuff off the one you have.

Let's reason logically. If the processor is very hot, then it does some work. So, you need to look for what the processor is doing at this time.

You have to check the task manager. Are there any background processes there?

Farther. Look at the operation of the Windows Update Center.

Disable antivirus. Has anything changed?

In addition, you need to check the cleanliness inside the system unit of the computer. Also check the thermal grease on the processor, the speed of the processor cooler.
