Default 90 degrees

Is it bad for a computer to hit 90 degrees while playing a game? (battlefield 2)

90F is about 32C, and I would like to see something at 32C while playing BF2, so, he must mean 90C. In that case, yes, that's not great, 90C, that's actually really bad lol..

Try a new HSF, or re-sitting your current. Apply thermal paste as well..

yep, 90C is bad! Has it always been like that? I'd try reseating the heatsink.
