G73 Overheating and Crashes

Level 7
Hello Folks.

I've been using a G73jh for some time, never had any related problems. But in the past month the GPU temps have been reaching 127Degrees and then crashes the machine. I can try and reduce the load by dialing down game setting but this is just side stepping the problem whereas before I didn't have to.

The ATI Drivers are up to date and I clear the exhausts with a hoover and underside reasonably often.

What I don't understand is why there is no safeguard to stop the temps climbing in this way, doesn't seem anything in the BIOS (213) is available. Am I missing something?

Any advice please?
/Thanks Oli
