so, the temp on my 6600 GT jumped about 15 degrees in a minute accompanied with an odd smell. The fan on it died about a month ago, and the computer is only used for facebook, word, etc. So when it goes up even farther than 85C and smells bad, something concerns me. Note, I have had it at 140C before without a smell, so I don't think it's the video card that's frying right now (yes I stopped what I was doing the moment I saw the 140)
Intel Processor 2.4GHz Dual-Core (not sure exactly what it is but it's worse than an i3, better than a p4 and not sandy bridge)
QuickEdit: While typing the post, the temp dropped 6 degrees and I no longer smell anything, still concerned however.

If I'm posting, I probably have something horribly wrong with my computer, there's no obvious explanation for it, that's just the way it is.
