Hey there. First of all, I'm a brand new member to the site. Forgive me if this post should've been posted elsewhere on the forums and so fourth.
Anyways, about a month or so ago, I finally downloaded Speccy, a form of software that was used to detect the temperatures of different pieces of hardware within your system. Turns out that, after being used intensely, and for a few hours, my GPU would severely overheat to around 90-95 degrees Celsius (the highest being 98C).
After ignoring such issues because I'm a complete moron, my startup had suddenly gotten slower (it has gone from being a minute or so to around 3-5minutes), and my fan now will rapidly turn on, and turn off during startup.
Anyways, that's pretty much my problem here. What is the most likely source of the problem, and what would be my best option at this point?
