Until you get your temper under control, punish yourself with cheap microsoft keyboards from Tescos or similar. It will help you calm down.

The cooker hood. Well, it works, but one of the plastic screws holding the filter in place did not go in properly and is pointing sideways. It'll probably break when trying to adjust it. Oh well, there is always duct tape.

EDIT: oh well,....it looks like the cooler just got stuck with dust, ...Temps  dropped from 90-->60 imediately,...

 

and what I noticed was very poor performance of graphics ingame when Temps went beyond 96-97 deg C,....

That would be the joy of thermal throttling. Seems to be annoyingly aggressive these days.

My gpu died yesterday for 2nd time already. It's and old GTX 470 SOC. First baking was done like 1,5 year ago and it worked till now, last time i had couple crashed and finally it died.

Yesterday I baked it again and it's alive again, but it's going to be last one chefs special. All plastic elements are melted too much, so there is already problem with fitting cable into video outputs

A GTX 470 you say? I'd say it had a damn good run. :honoring: I've upgraded thrice since I had my 480 though admittedly that was not so much due to a lack of graphics processing power as it was due to me wanting a new toy to push out of spec. :D
