Gah, I have none of these games.

Mine can run hot, as mentioned in another thread, when I am really taxing it.

I got up to 84c in Unreal Tournament Pre-Alpha.

 

What is needed is the actual temps of the unit when understress.

 

I used an app called GPUz and it's free. Just run it in the background and turn on logging. (You can also just Alt-Tab out of the game and see what the GPU temp is at at that time.)

 

Be sure to set GPUz to look at the nVidia GPU and not the Intel one. 🙂

When you have the results, post them here and I can tell you if there are normal or not.

 

 

 

Let me know how it goes. 🙂

Increasing performance usually leads to more heat, I don't think there is any method to gain system performance without creating more heat.  (Maybe have additonal cooling system?)

 

I wouldn't be worrying too much about damaging the system, this hardware is designed and built to run heavy-loading games.
