That is almost 100C ouch. Turn that fan up some more. Check for dust clogging the fan and see if you can get some more air flow going on.

Don't worry, when I'm gaming it doesn't get any higher than 165F and I can't turn up the fan for whatever reason, no software, NTune won't do it, RivaTuner won't run at all.

woohoo! I'm gettin' me a GX2, not showing anyone the link because I know someone who doesn't have a soul will go and *** *** it. (not swearing, just preventing anyone from looking it up.)
