Default Gateway M-6862 Serious Problem?

Ok, since I've had this I've played WoW maxed out everything, ran perfect. Good Good, close to 40fps which I'm happy with, However it would get super hot if I played on my bed, go figure, Well its been about 8 months since I played WoW, and I wanna start playing again, but lately my laptop is going nuts, its really really hot. If I have it on the kitchen table it still gets really hot,

I took off the heatsink on both cores yesterday and re thermal pasted and took off the old, it helped a little bit, but not as good as I want, right now I just reformatted and speedfan is telling me I have the following

Temp 52c
HD 37c
Temp1 81c
Core0 62c
Core1 62c

Seems realllly high to me, and if I try to play WoW it lags like crazy probably getting like 8 FPS. Don't know whats going on, Laptop is just way to hot, never used to be like this....

Try a cooling mat or dock. I know Cooler Master has some nice ones.
