CPU Temps

So as of today my CPU has had sudden increases in temps. It will randomly spike from its regular 20 C idle temp to 47ish C out of nowhere for a few seconds and then go back down. I've also noticed more lag while gaming, which has never occurred before. It is overclocked to 5GHz and I have had no problems with it until today. Any ideas?

Is it a i9 9900k right? If you want to OC it, you should use a decent 360mm watercooler. If you're already using water cooling solution, check if there's any new application installed using your CPU cores. You'd try a Safe restart.
It's an i5 9600k on a 240mm
