Default Problems with heat?

Hi, I just invested in this laptop:

Asus - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® 2 Processor Technology - Brown/Yellow/Black - G50Vt-X5

Its a demon machine that runs every game I have with ease, but there is one problem, it seems like it gets REALLY hot. I downloaded a program that shows the temp and when I am playing WoW the temp is about 60 - 65c. Im just wondering if thats normal because its a rather powerful processor, or should i invest in a cooling pad or an extra fan?

Welcome to Tech Forums!

60-65C for is normal for either the CPU or graphics on load. You should worry if it goes over 70C though. So just keep monitoring.
