    Over up the side cover and make sure that the cooling fan on the cpu is working. The gpu temperatures are fairly normal. But the cpu temp is way too high.

    Your GPU temps are quite normal, 75 at full load is common and safe.

    The CPU temps however, are leading me to believe that the CPU temperature gauge is broken.

    At 105 degrees Celsius that processor will shut down due to the physical properties of the material. 120 is a ridiculous temperature, which makes me think that the temp gauge is busted, and you shouldn't worry about it.
