Yesterday, while checking my computer when I got home, I got a warning message from Nvidea saying that the vid card's temperature was getting too high and had to lower some settings. When I checked the temperature it was a whopping 118 degrees C. I turned the pc off, thinking maybe it just needed some rest, but when I turned it back on and left it going for another several hours it was back up to a very high temp. I'm not sure where to begin on how to solve this. I've already ruled out ventilation issues, but beyond that I'm not really sure what's wrong, since I'm a bit noobish on how this stuff works.
Any suggestions? Help will be greatly appreciated!
add: Core temp hovering around 110 degrees celcius while system is idle.
add: No current performance issues, but does not mean they will become present
