The games that I usually play, suddenly started to drop fps(from constant 120 to 20-40) then goes back up after a few seconds. It only started happening around 2 weeks ago I think.

Here's my Laptop Specs:
MSI GE60 0ND
Nvidia GTX 660m
i5 3310
8gb ram

*Btw whenever I play, the temp of the GPU reaches around 94 C. Is that a dangerous temp? If it is, are there any ways how to control it or make it lower?

Solutions/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :)

Since you've only been experiencing this for 2 weeks or so I would venture to to say your system is fine and long as you get a cooler for it. I read up that some guy took apart his laptop cleaned it out and re applied the thermal paste and his temps went back down to normal. It would be easier just to buy a cooler unless you really know what you're doing.

Yea your GPU is definitely throttling to prevent it from overheating. 94 degrees Celsius is really hot for a gpu. Does your case have good air flow? Did one of the fans on the GPU stop working?

Ohh thanks for the suggestion! Btw, are there any other ways besides from buying a cooler? And does it mean that my GPU has been somewhat melted(sorry dont know the exact term) or damaged?
