Right, I'm playing on a laptop and there's not much I can do to improve the cooling besides what I've already done such as elevate it and clean it. It just generally overheats on games with uncapped and/or high-end capped framerates.
Forcing V-sync through my video card options seems to have fixed the problem for now. Though 60 frames is still too much in some cases.
