So I got this problem lately were using the internet is making my CPU fan speed & temp increase a lot after a while of browsing online,I haven't got any add on's installed on Fire/waterfox ,but for some reason the CPU fan rises from low 2k rpm to over 4000+ rpm and CPU temp rising from 40-50c plus the CPU usage rises alot too ???
I did try and Google the problem but get no helpful answer apart from disabling any browser adds on's which I haven't got (plus I tried different browsers like IE & Chrome but still get the same thing)
or it's a Spy/malware problem but I have ran full scans with Trend AV & Malwarebytes and nothing shows up
I know theres something wrong because If I don't use the browser at all from a boot up then my PC is ok and fan & temps stay the same.
my PC tower is the Antec 1200 case so got no issues with airflow etc.

What are you system specs???
Could be dust in the CPU fan if your using an AMD CPU then chances are you may have cool and quite enabled which drops the CPU speed when theres no serious program wanting to use the CPU alot but for INTERNET its weird. Have you also checked for spyware and viruss etc could be something starting up when using a browser thats using CPU cycles???
Also use Spybot search and destory 1.6 (not 2.0 its not stable even thought its been officially released) also try spyware blaster its not a scanner but a spyware blocker at registry level great free programs both of them
John25 wishes they had posted this first.
Use the task manager to check which process is eating up CPU time.
Ah Forgot about this Thread as I had the issue sort of Solved on another Forum.
My Spec is:
Antec 1200 Case
AMD 1100T BE CPU ,Stock
8gb DDR3 1600Mhz RAM
EVGA Superclocked GTX570HD GPU
Corsair TX650W V2 PSU
Win 7 Ultimate 64
I scanned for Spy/ad/malware,Viruses etc but nothing Showed up, also checked BIOS settings etc
Also the only thing on Task Manager that was using any real CPU process was the *System Idle Process* which was averaging between 75-80 The rest were on 10 or lower
I downloaded Bit Defender and booted it up & even though it never found any Issues it somehow solved my Problem ???
& Even though there was barely any dust in the case I gave it another good clean out ,Checked all the connections & took off the Stock CPU paste & put on some Artic Silver 5.
