ThinkPad E545 runs fans and dies on game startup



I have the following problem with my brandnew Lenovo Edge 545 System:


After exchanging my 1Tb HDD with a 512 Gb SDD and installing all drivers from the Lenovo Homepage, I also installed some games. With Diablo III, Dota 2 and Counter-Strike Source I have the following problem:


Shortly after I start the game, the fan starts to run really loudly and after maybe 30sec the ThinkPad shuts down immediately to black screen. Diablo and CSS are working fine, now that I start them in Compatibility Mode, but for Dota this is not possible, as it is started via Steam. Also I think it is only a workaround and there must be a problem somewhere with my computer.


The CPU usage is on constant 30 - 40% alltough the fan is turning like hell.


I am using Windows 7, 64bit.


Has anyone had the same problems, or maybe even a solution?


EDIT: It seems as if the AMD Radeon HD 8570M is heating up very fast. From 40 to 95°C in ca. 30sec. What can I do against this? The driver is up to date.
