Some time last week while playing games, my computer will heat up to 99-103c and then turn off, I am unsure what has changed and why this is happening, the only thing I've done recently is install 2 steam games

I've tried
  • resetting the bios
  • removing dust from the entire pc
  • elevated it off the carpet
  • applying new thermal paste to the GPU
  • having my fans always run at 100%
  • underclocking the GPU
  • lowering the maximum processor state to 80% from 100% in power options
  • lowering the settings of the games I play
I am unsure of what to do and would appreciate help

something else to note: when my GPU would overheat before, the ENTIRE PC would be hot, now it's just the heatsinks & GPU itself

Mod Edit

the GPU fan was spinning super slow evidentally, I replaced the fan and the issue is resolv
