  1. Hey guys,

    I just bought an MSi GS70 about a week ago, and I noticed that while playing any graphically intensive game, like Battlefield 3, the CPU gets very hot.

    I showed a max temperature of 95 degrees Celsius while playing BF3. Is this temperature cause for concern? I'm thinking about sending it back for a replacement because I have read that some of these computers are shipped with a bad thermal pasting job, which could be causing the problems to some extent.

    So basically what I want to know is, do you think I should send it back for a replacement, or just get a cooling pad for use 90% of the time that I am gaming and hope that it doesn't end up ruining something on the inside?

    I knew it would run hot, but I wasn't expecting it to be this hot.

    Thank you

    After a little research your temps seem to be what is considered normal for that laptop, and within intel specs.

    I would not worry unless you have overheating/ shut down issues.
