Do you use your laptop on a desk or in an environment where heat cannot be easily displaced (padded surfaces)? Do you have a laptop cooling solution such as a stand with integrated fans? Have you blown out your fan exhaust area on your laptop?

Not "blown up", rather used compressed air to get any blockages free from the fan exhaust. If you install a temperature monitoring program and keep an eye on it, it may give an indication as to when your temperatures get too high and under what conditions.

I would suggest stop playing a game called Super meat boy! No, seriously...can you hear the fan spinning and or feel air coming out of the exhaust. If you have the skills, after checking the temps, I would pull it apart remove the heatsink and fan, clean it properly, and re-apply clean and re-apply thermal paste. Good luck!
