All Gamers have learned to hate lag. It slows down the computer and is seriously one of the most annoying things about Gaming. As far as PC gaming goes, lag may be caused due to various reasons, like network connectivity issues, game specification requirements, heat etc.
Today, we are going to talk about the last one, which is CPU heat. All of us have probably experienced it.

Therefore, it is important to control this heat and provide proper ventilation for your prized CPU.
