90 Degrees Celsius heat please help

Hello, I have been using my laptop (ASUS ROG G75VX) for about 2 and a half years. It is facing a heat problem. It just feels really hot.
So I checked the status using GPU SHARK .

On Idle, my temperature is 41 degrees Celsius. But when doing something else like watching movies; surfing the net, the temperatures rise to 50 to 60 degrees Celsius. (even if I have a fan pointed at my laptop directly 😞 )

This is the specs of my laptop:

41907

The hottest I have is when I am gaming. It rises around more than 90 degrees Celsius (Plaing Shadow of Mordor in the lowest settings @ 720p, which is still amazing)

What should I do? Nope, my laptop is not overclocked. I was planning on overclocking but after I looked at my stats, it got me freaked out

Should I put in a new thermal compound? If so, what brand would you suggest? I saw in posts here that most people here uses IC Diamond thermal paste/compound. Is it worth it?

I'm scared that the heat might destroy my graphics card. Please help! 😞

After 2 1/2 years sounds like a good cleaning and repaste is in order ..
If you are not familiar with doing such work as repasting it's best left to a professional ..

If you have animals .. especially cats they are notorious for gunk'n up computers ..
you may have a blanket growing in there. A fresh can of air may blow it out nicely .. but ..
it should really be disassembled ..

Best of Luck. Please keep us posted. Welcome to ROG. .c.

Yes, it should absolutely be disassembled. But, if you start with a can of air, PLEASE pin the fans so they don't over-spin - you WILL burn out your fan bearings.
