Get a CRyorig R1 Ultimate

I wouldn't upgrade to that, the x31 is fine. I know its not great but it shouldn't need upgraded.

I would get a new PSU like the EVGA g2 550w then get a GTX 1070/RX480. It would help if you gave a budget of what you are looking to spend.

Well i do not really have a specific budget right now, but is the upgrade to a gtx 1070 needed? because i play games at 1080p and i dont really care if its at ultra or so. And just because curiousity why the new psu?

The power supply is bad but depending on how long you have used it then you don't need to get another one.

Around a year right now

Hmm... after a year It's probably worth upgrading to be safe. Get a EVGA G2 550w/650w or Corsair RMx/RMi 550w/650w.

Just curious but why upgrading to be safe?

Have you clean it? A lot of dust accumulated between the fan and radiator. That might be your issue.

Nope indeed didnt clean that, do you have any tips on how to clean it?

Get an aerosol can and just point and shoot. The dust should leave the radiator.

Yeah, that stuff. Just put the long tube extension against the dusty radiator and pull the trigger.
