So i was playing Grid 2 today and while playing it realiesed my computer was feeling a bit hotter then usual, so i closed the game and found in MSI Afterburner my GPU temp was consistently between 95-97 degrees C. I left my computer cool for a bit then turned it off. I later came back and played it again and within 5 mins it was back up to 90 degrees. I know this temp is not good, but the computer is completely stock. It went to Asus a few months back to replace my dead pixel screen ( which came back with all my screen clips still not clipped)

I am not quite sure what to do, i normally play boredlands 2 and the temp sits below 80, so i might give that a go and post to see what the temp is with that and see if it is higher then usual. I am thinking maybe a fan controller issue, but not to sure and i cna't control my fan speed for that particular fan.

Cheers for any help as it would be much appreciated :)

Run Furmark, full screen 1080 res, 15 minute Burn in test. If your temps get much above 80C you most likely are in need of a repasting?
Of course open up the Fan covers and remove them and clean. I use a pencil or any object to hold the fan from spinning and blow it clean at the same time blowing the dust off your Heat sinks etc. Quit when you don't see anymore dust coming out the back. Cleaning should be a regular routine. I have a lot of dust in my area so I clean out the system monthly.
