    Check out this article on i7s and temps:

    Intel Core i7 Temperatures | Puget Systems Blog

    The shortened version is basically you'll be ok but keep monitoring and get the temp down under 90c asap..

    You could always try playing with the side panel off? Annoying I know but better that than a fried chip..

    actually i just fixed it thinks for the help tho , i took off the cpu fan , and the cpu fan had become loose and wasn't holding down in there tight so i lifted it and the thermal paste was like cracking, so luckily for me i just fixxed the heatsink in other computer not to long ago so i had some spare thermal paste, put that down on the chip snapped the fan on and now i hit 40's idle and 70 and under while playing diablo 3 XD
