Its too hot as it is and that won't help much. Not enough info to go on anyway. Try other games or function and if still a problem call Lenovo support. There must be an internal problem if its alway hot.

I don't play games myself. But I do know tecnology and building sufficient cooling into a confined space such as a notebook is a science requiring state of the art components and highly efficient cooling tubes at least. Both the GPU and CPU generate large amounts of heat and cannot be moved out of the notebook with a modest fan. They need a good volume of air and a surface to extract it from. Internal heat sink to disapate the heat over a larger area. Various tackics can be used.

 

The only way to ensure you can run full bore for lengths of time is in a Tower computer with proper cooling components attached. Game boxes are built for that. Gaming computer I think not.

 

If its only one game then I would wonder why and contact the game maker for an answer.

 

In my opinion these are not the system to play games on solely. Ocassionally yes as they have faster GPU's to process graphics, memory, and drives if needed matched with an sufficient CPU. That is pretty much the difference over what I have in the Z70-80 which has a lower end GPU and DDR3 ram but still will play them if needed but likely not at your required fps.

 

Build a tower or get a game box built from the ground up for that purpose.

1. This laptop is called "gaming"
2. I played in CS GO on low settings with command "fps_max" and CPU temperature was 100!!!!

Doesn't matter what they call it. Business models as the T series had issue in using them for business.

Its only better for gaming than other series by not ideal by a long shot.
