Gaming on Z70-80 - Can I manually throttle the CPU to reduce temperature?

I am currently running the Z70-80 with the Intel i7-5500U 2.4 GHz dual-core, and I'd like to know if there is a way to manually throttle the CPU to reduce temperature while gaming.


Star Conflict gaming is heavy on the GPU, so reducing the resolution reduced CPU temp to around 75C. Marvel Heroes appears to be heavy on the CPU, because reducing the resolution doesn't affect temperature, which maxes out at 105C (according to Core Temp)


While working and at idle, CPU temp usually ranges from 35 to 45, depending on what I'm doing.
