I recently got a game which was quite cpu intensive, after playing it for a while my laptop started heating up to the point of where I though I could smell burning.
I stopped and monitored the heat and saw that with CPUID monitor both my cpu and gpu was sitting at 90C now im not sure if theres a limitation to the thermostat ( on how far it can measure )
because it never went above the 90. Most of what I read on online searched say 90 is bad. People are talking about running at 70 degrees Celsius as for intensive gaming.

Is this true? I have done what I can cleaning out the laptop, cooling pad but i dont think there is a way I can stay at 70. Is this the norm? Im happy to frop the game as too much for my comp rather than damaging anything

Laptops are generally more difficult to dissipate heat, expecially if you are using a laptop for gamedev or gaming, 90 degrees for a laptop is "normal" after a couple of years due to dust and thermal paste.

You could always invest a few bucks in a small tube of compressed air or even open up your laptop to clean up the fans every month or so...

AFAIK opening a laptop will never void the warranty (unless you actually cause damage while doing it). Some laptops however have warranty seals covering specific screws, in which case you're better off using compressed air to keep the warranty intact.

Ideal CPU and GPU temp is about 10•C  Cheesy

Maybe lower your gfx settings, disable AA, and activate vsync so your GPU has less work.
