Y510p CPU overheat - Fanspeed

I have the lenovo Y510p with 8GB, GT755m, FHD screen and 4700QM.

 

I have this notebook 4 days now, and today I played my first game (CS:GO) on it. 

After 15-20 minutes the CPU (core 1 & 2) reach 98°C wich causes the CPU to throttle to 800MHz and the FPS drop to 30. After ~20 seconds the temperatures were 85°C and the CPU went back to 2.4GHz. After 10 minutes it's again to hot, throttles down again,... and so on.

I know there are a lot of people facing this problem with this notebook, but I noticed that the FAN-speed isn't at it's maximum speed. The fan makes less noise/RPM than when I use the Dust-removal function. So maybe if Lenovo makes a BIOS update wich let the fanspeed go higher or wich can let us disable HyperThreading (it's useless in games), we can lower the heat and thus fix the problem.

Even with Turbo Boost disabled (which never worked with multithreaded application anyway), throttles the CPU to 800MHz.
