    CPU around 45 C trough 60 while gaming
    GPU around 60 C trough 80 while gaming

    This are the only 2 parts we look at the moment.

    Please do following:
    1. run the tool
    2. play some game for few minutes
    3. minimize the game down by using Windows key
    4. look if CPU/GPU temp goes near 100 C and if so take a screenshot

    If not play the game for a minute more and repeat the process and so on.

    Hi, I just attached a file to show you my temps while gaming. Note: This is only when I first start the game so nothing tense that can cause my gpu and cpu to use more data is happening. So that means that is the coolest I can go while gaming.

    My max temp is 86% for my CPU and 80% for my GPU.

    CPU seems to run high, but in order to overheat it you need to play some time, coz CPU temp does not grow instantly but over time.
    Take yourself time and play the game in order to either confirm or eliminate this possibility.

    I'm having hard time to understand the report, it says CPU max was 105C therefore I would prefer a screenshot in addition to report.

    ahh ok and yes, I get the BSOD halfway through playing the game so it must be overheating for sure. I will send a screenshot in a few hours.

    Did you look at CPU temp in regular intervals by minimizing the game? what temperature was there?

    Ok so I tried playing the game but unfortunately I could not get screen shots because my laptop auto shut down sooner than I had thought. However, I have evidence which might prove it has indeed overheated.
    1) When I minimised my screen while playing the CPU and GPU where in the 90 degrees point.
    2) when my laptop shut down it would not turn back on for 5 minutes which might mean it is cooling down.
    3) My laptop felt really hot when I touched it.

    PC will shut down instantly if CPU goes over 100C max 110C

    GPU can afford it self 90C but for CPU it a bit too much.
    If your PC is under warranty you will most likely get a free CPU repaste, otherwise you can ask a friend or somebody to do repastement for you, that's not expensive procedure, cca 15 bucks.

    In addition clearing dust from PC must be done, coz that causes overheat too for all components.
    Improving cooling system also if the above 2 things do not work.

    I had the same issue, ignored the fact and my GPU got burned in about 2 months.
