Hi guys. I have problem with my RTX 2060 super graphic card. So no matter what I will do my gpu goes to 100+ hot spot degree at 80 - 100%. It sometimes reaches 106.5c which cause fans speed up to 100%. I bought card 2 years ago and I was using default fans settings (didn't notice problem before) so I decided to run MSI Afterburn and makes fans runs at 100% for nearly all the time (100% at 70c). It changes nothing. GPU doesn't goes above 76 degrees.

This are results
1)
Fans speed: 2500 RPM
GPU temp 75-76 (don't want to go higher)
Hot spot: 100 - 106c

2)
Fans speed: 3500RPM
GPU temp 70 - 73c
Hot spot 100 - 106c

Idle:
GPU temp 58c
Hot spot 77c

Steps I did:
  1. Clean up GPU from dust
  2. Makes custom fan curve with MSI Afterburn
I read that I should try to put new thermal paste but my GPU is still on warrancy. Can this temp makes damage to my GPU?

I am using stock cooling
