My 7000M in my acer 5520 is running extremely hot making it impossible to play almost any game. The idle temp is usually around 92 Celsius, and the gaming temp can be 110 Celsius+ in some instances, I checked my fps in Counterstrike and it came out to 4. I am sure the problem is with the GPU because I have reformatted, and used it in different fresh installs of different OS's. I cleaned my fan and heatsink (the fan was very dirty, this helped to drop the temp a bit). My heatsink has burning on it, which leads me to believe that it may no be conducting the cool air properly. So my 2 questions, 1 - Do you think replacing the heatsink would solve this problem, 2- do you have any other suggestions that may solve this problem.
