    Try lowering some of the settings when conducting these "tests". Your computer is not designed for 4K, so that explains the 0.6 fps in 3DMARK. Your MAX resolution is 1920x1080 (4K UHD resolution is 3840x2160 and higher). And DOTA 2, simply run it at High settings instead of Ultra and see what you can get with your fps. Just because it is advertised as a "Gaming Laptop", does not mean that you can run everything at its highest settings.
    Also, are you running the latest video drivers?

    The max operating temperature of the i7 4700HQ is 100°C. So I would generally say that you are fine with the temps that of idle and under load. Idle temps usually run half of max temp on laptops, because they do not have a very good cooling system to keep it cool.

    When I say the 4700HQ it covers mostly all within that class of chips (example: the 4710HQ, 4720HQ, 4750HQ, etc.) They all have a maximum operating temperature of 100°C. So you are still within your normal operating range of temperatures.
