    The laptop is deisgned to run, it will not melt under 100% load :) If it does, have it replaced under warranty.

    Just don't put it on a blanket or something that would block the air intakes.

    Of course, the life of the thing will shorten if it has to run at full loads for long amounts of time, so you may consider exra cooling solutions if you plan to overload the machine for days at a time.

    Compusa's going out of business sales have some great notebook coolers for 20-40% from what I saw. I had a 6800 mobile unit on a 2 year old laptop and I needed the cooling pad, im sure youll need it for the new 8600 model to.
