Does it over head and shut off or just gets really hot? When you say this is the only game what other games are you compairing it to?

I use HWMonitor to keep an eye on my temps. You can download it at http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/hwmonitor/1.24-setup.exe
I would use that to get an idea of where your temps are and compare them to the other games at the same amoun of game time. Play each for an hour with an hour or so inbetween for cool down. I assume you are running rift on ultimate settings?
no, i dont like sprakly things, i play with no AA/boom and stuff like this.
1600x res, the 2000+ ones are to big

thanks for the link!

I have an MSI GT70 and it has a button on it to set the fan to maximum.. Does yours have the same thing? I tend to use it a lot on games that are GPU intensive.

I bought a laptop fan at Wal-Mart for $14.99 that helps a bunch. I had the same problem.
yes i use the fan button, it helps ALOT

i dont think ill find as big of a fan as my laptp is..

i suggest a piece of software by a company called piriform, the software is called speccy, its free and provides a detailed breakdown of all your computers hardware, not a fix but a good way to monitor temps etc, from that you can research online what would be a dangerous level of temperature.

Also said i would suggest checking all the little things such as dust build up near the fan, as that would not allow the flow of cool air to keep compontents temperature down.

Also check the thermal cooling paste around the CPU as it might want re applying maybe
cooling paster after 1 year? I dont know...

well i found a way to have it warm...ish while playing rift

game booster 3.0

optimal nvidia screen specs
semi optimal specs for nvdidia epiriece about rift

and imagine that if i turn off ambience the temp rises....

I had the same issue with overheating and my laptop would just restart on it's own. All I did to solve the issue was clean the vents, found one that had a bunch of dust in it and I used a vaccum and cleaned it up, no issues now.

I dont own the ame BUT i do own a MSI Ge70. Mine dont overheat on CS:GO or dayz But i am using a Mastercooler Fan and if you dont want to use it this is what you need to do:
*Blow the fan (i dont know how but i have got help from my friend)
*Go into your GeforceExprience tab and change graphic settings
* Use the fan buttom next to your Keyboard lighter buttom
