So im getting a lot of lag on my computer right now and i cant figure out why. i opened hwmonitor and GT and both say my cpu temp is at 100. any ideas on what is causing this? i googled it but didnt find much
Sure, there is a chance overheating CPU could cause it to become damaged. Of course if you noticed the temperatures and cut the system off quickly enough, then that minimizes the chances of damage. The system is supposed to be designed to throttle the CPU performance and shut down the system if the CPU gets to hot to help avoid damaging it though.
