    Whenever I load any game I own on this computer, I start off with a good FPS of around 40-80. However, about 5-10 minutes later it drops to about 0-5. What I find strange is just yesterday morning my computer arrived back from Dell from a water repair, could they possibly put it back together wrong? My first concern was overheating, so I checked my temps.
    GPU Core was at 90 Celsius when I began to get choppiness. My Core 1 and 2 were at about 94 Celsius. This seems extremely high. Is this something I'm going to have to ship back to Dell to get repaired, or can a laptop cooling pad fix this, perhaps?
    Please Help Me out, I haven't been able to play WoW in 2 weeks, and now my PC's back and I lag like hell >.<
    Thanks (;

    Update, this is odd. I just got my lag up in WoW and the temp is only at 74 Celsius, perhaps not overheating?
