    Are you sure FAN is not blocked ? ( happend to me few times, when some calbe was stucked inside the fan thus blocking it ).

    That smell means something is waaay to hot.

    No it is not blocked as i hear the increase in sound immediatly as i activate the profile , but i opserved that this mostly happen when i forget to activate game or cooling profile before playing

    Buy a 3rd party cooler from xigmatek or thermalright or whatever, I would never let that lousy standard cooler cool my gpu, it sux. Its not worth burning youre gpu, specially when you think that Egypt is a very warm country?? How hot is it there now?? 30-35c maybe 40c?
