    A common issue, happens a lot, the better the specs the better the pc as they say, but you can make a few adjustments on on your own, close down your PC, leave it off for 15 minutes or more, during this time, take a vacum put the nozzle up to the fan and let it suck out any dust, if you wish to go to more extreme measures, unscrew the back of the computer and get the hoover in their, you would be surprised at the dust that gathers in their.

    once complete, put the computer back on, run cc cleaner or a cleaning tool and wipe your computer history, then use task manager and go through all the running applications and "end" task on all the applications your not using, the memory and cpu this saves is incredible.

    also do not use firefox for streaming, use chrome, firefox uses up to much resource laying down the tracks let alone, downloading and streaming
