What is the worst that canhappen if IPC Game and mycomputer overheats?
Hello everyone. Well, I love PC Gaming and I play my computer games from the moment I get home from school to the time I go to bed. A few 1 hour breaks here and there of course. Anyways, I installed about 3 fans about 2 months ago because I was having a problem with overheating. After say playing Skyrim for a long duration of time only 3 hours straight my computer would shut down at the time. It would overheat, but every game was a little different. When I installed those 3 fans my computer no longer would overheat. It stayed at a steady 37 C degrees when in game. Now, one of my fans burned out. I don't know when but it must have been within the past few days because it used to blow air on my leg and I constantly look down at my case to look at the temps and feel my fans. So I got Max Payne 3 and War of the Roses this past weekend on those Steam Thanksgiving Sales. Now that the fan is burned out, I see my temps go up to 60 C when I was playing Max Payne 3 and War of the Roses, they never have been that high since I fixed the problem. Obviously, the temps went so high because one of the fans burnt out. I ordered some new fans online, but the earliest ETA is Friday, and the latest is December 6. I really want to play Max Payne 3, I have been playing it on and off for 10 minutes because I don't want to damage this computer. I have also been playing older games such as; Day of Defeat, Half Life, Team Fortress Classic, and Unreal Tournament 2004. My temps stay at around 45 C when I play these old games. They are lower than when compared to Max Payne 3 and War of the Roses obviously. Can I do any harm by playing Max Payne 3 and War of the Roses even though that fan burnt out? Is it a good idea or should I just stick to playing the old games until the fans I ordered come in? Thanks in advance.

if it is a hard shut down, it could corrupt your hard drive/ssd.
You should hear your motherboard beep if your CPU is overheating to the point where it's going to cause permanent damage, but 60 C on full load is not really anything to worry about.
