Clean the HSF and make sure the fan spins freely.

HSF = Heatsink Fan. Your card is overheating, 105c is the limit so if it has hit 120c it may be too late already.

look at it see if there is any dust build up, you can blow off the dust with a can of compressed air (dont hold it upside down though)

Some people would use a can of compressed air to blow the dust out but I like to a brand new 1/4 inch paint brush and a bit of care.

You can buy compressed air that you would use to get the dust out. Uninstall the hsf, spray some air into it and reinstall it. Don't use acid......

Mousemonkey beat me to it...

That sounds like thermal paste and I hope you replaced it with a fresh layer both on the CPU and GPU as it is what allows for/helps the thermal conduction.

The paste is what helps the heat to be conducted away from the source to the HSF by filling in the imperfections in contacting surfaces, basically the HSF's are not quite in contact with each other so the HSF cannot really do it's job without that paste even if the surfaces were perfectly lapped.

I wouldn't advise using the PC at all until you have reapplied the thermal paste but as for which one to get ? That's a toughie, I'm using Arctic Cooling MX-2 myself and I haven't suffered any meltdowns
