I'd check the CPU fan and heatsink. It could be dirty and in need of a cleaning or maybe the bracket that holds down the heatsink has come loose or broken, make sure its not loose by trying to wiggle it and examining it closely. Also check the other fans in the case to make sure they all still work.

If you are referring to CPU usage then can likely ignore my post.
