I'm afraid, my notebook is too hot. 

Processor is around 40-50°C while idle (fans switch on and off all the time). When I run a game, it avereges around 75-80°C with spikes at 95°C.

When I was updating BIOS, fans were spinning very fast in case of emergency. They weren't as fast during the gameplay. Is there any option to make fans spin faster? I noticed, there is an option Fan Always On in BIOS. I've enabled it, but it still drops to low speed. Fans won't stop spinning now, so the CPU hits as low as 35°C while idle, but it stil hits high temperatures ingame.

I've tried installing HP Cool Sense, but don't see any effect from that. I've also installed OMEN Command Center, but there is no fan controll as well, just temperature sensors.

Notebook is new, just out of the box, I don't think it's worth cleaning (neither hardware nor software), performance is switched to balanced, there is enough space for coolers to take air in and out.

What is a working temperature for my device, should I even be worried about such values?
