I do believe it would be very helpful to all members if this Tutorial was completed.

System Info - See Your System Specs

It is very difficult to help with over heating or hardware problems without this information.

Xen12 Take a look at My System Specs in the lower left corner of this post and others and you will see information that can be added.
Once you have done this the Specs will follow your every post.

Noted, let me know if you'd like anything else

PS. I don't know too much about the fan(s), or my PSU, but as far as I know it's a really bad PSU with only 130 Watts

I asked for that info many a times (in 6, in #8 in #10) you never answered.

Now you are saying that you know .... then why you have tried to suppress that info? I totally failed to understand why you were that much unwilling or reluctant to convey that message. Hiding a fact does not change a fact. Specially when that fact is the determining fact.
Go change it. Have one of 750 Watts, at least of 600 watts.

We will wait for your update on Wednesday.

P.S. Dont forget to apply new thermal paste to the CPU, after dismantling and cleaning the computer. Otherwise the heat issue will run even more beyond control.

I apologize if I didin't tell you, I did not know how to find out, so i ended up googling the answer and then took some time to open the case clean the dust a little, and try to find the Wattage.

I've watched the video and I will definitely get some thermal paste for the CPU.

In my opinion all things are STOP.
You have a 130W power supply and your video card minimum requirements is 400W. A proper power supply is absolutely necessary.

Your Stock OEM case is not designed for extra needed air circulation.

To be straight forward honest, their really isn't a lot you can do for a quality upgrade with the system you now have. By the time you upgrade the case, video card and power supply you got a real good start on a new system.

I already found a 750Watt PSU, the only thing I have to do is measure the length/Width of my power supply, once I see the measurements match, I'll go for it and buy it, and apply some thermal paste to the CPU. I've stopped gaming and everything, I'm just normal browsing, but even in normal browsing I'm seeing a 58-61 on Speccy

EDIT: I also plan to build a PC in the coming months

Wish you luck.
Some of those OEM computer towers are made to special measurement for the OEM computer builder like Gateway and are very hard to upgrade anything inside them. I have only bought one store bought computer in my life and I gave it away and build my own now. Store bought OEM are damn near impossible to work with for upgrading.
Hopefully a quality proper power supply will carry you through until you can build your own.
Let us know how things go for you.

What power supply did you find?
