You have good air ventilation inside case ? *try open case and run without side panel and check temps.
Clean GPU from dust if is necessary
My case not it have only a 12cm fan with 2500RPM flow the heat out of the back of the case, i've try open the case it seem to be lower temp but not much i think 5 degree, i can't clean GPU Coz Asus Stick the Warranty Sticker on it i can remove the GPU, I'm thinking i will bring the VGA to the Asus and tell them check it for me cuz the temp is way too hight what do you think abou that plan ?
No need remove heat-sink for simple cleaning GPU, you can use paint brush and compressed canned air.
A soft bristle pain brush for dusting is perfectly safe. Or a small paint brush for watercolor for the tiny spots. I am using such brushes for 15 years and my father for even longer, never ever had any problem.. You can purchase a soft brush from almoust any convinience store. With air in a can, you can't remove the dust that sticks to matte surfaces - like fans, case surface, non glossy finish PCBs or metal heatsinks. Using a brush requires extra attention. Do not use force when brushing off the dust. Do not brush things like the CPU socket for example. Do not use hard brushes or brushes with metallic bristles. Soft (prefferably organic brushes) with non conductive materials are mandatory. Some cheap brushes with nailon/plastic bristles can carry static electricity. Be sure to check that no brush hairs are left behind. Cheers.
