Default Notebook Overheating

So according to people on here, my CPU is overheating while playing Hellgate Londong which causes the game to crash. How can I keep this from happening? I already have tried the cooling mats and it still does the same thing (which is why I didn't think it had to do with over heating). Any help is appreciated thanks.

might be a good idea to take it apart, buy some arctic silver thermal paste, and apply that on the heatsinks, you might as well do the gpu while you have everything apart, just make sure you dont apply too much, and clean the cpu and heatsink base off with alcohol, thats where i would start...

Laptops are tricky to get apart and put back together right.

I would return it.
