    Yes im sure, I have an G19 and i am keeping an eye on my LCD screen. The temp is always belove 100 Celsius. Rarely goes over. The games works fine and goes smoothly. they just happens to crash sometimes. I did validate the files thru steam everytime that happened and no files were changed. I also get no bluescreen

    If you mean by this your CPU then 100c or even near it isn't really desirable and probably the source or your issues. Can you post what CPU your running please and if your using stock cooling or an after market cooler.

    i dont remember what the cooling was named but it's not stock. The cooling i have is a little better and is silenced

    If that's the temperature at idle then chances are your over heating when the CPU is being really stressed. Try running Prime95 for 20mins (only basic tests) and see what temps you get. If you get up near 100c then stop.

    Hmm... right last test. Ok can you now try gaming and then when your machines is being taxed or particularly stressed alt-tab out and check the temps. I once discovered on a machine of mine that it was a lot hotter when gaming than when using Prime95 so do check.

    I am always keeping an eye on my LCD screen that shows the temp for my CPU's and GPU. always belowe 100 c and arround 80 (60 - 85) c

    I also have my window open all the time for better air. My computer heats my room pretty fast though
