@masterhand: Your GPU is on the weak side, but it will be enough as long as you don't mind lowering settings and are not expecting a solid 60fps.

@BassMan: You were wrong in the solid 60 fps thing. I have mid-settings and solid 60 fps. The only problem that i have (i don't know how to solve it) is that the cpu temp raises to 100 fucking degrees. It changes between 89, 90,92, 95, stays in 100 for seconds. I don't want to burn my laptop.

@masterhand: Turn off super sampling, post processing, Turn down draw distance and make sure your laptop is clean.

@masterhand: Yeah sorry mate, Just looked at the settings myself (game is open in the background coincidently). Theres no option to turn down any CPU heavy settings. Turn down the overall graphics and try again. Then if you want turn things one at a time up and see how it goes.

It will run, but it won't be a stylish ride...

Lower graphics or buy laptop cooling pad

You can also undervolt your CPU with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility. I run a core voltage offset of -0.140 V and it helps keep my 7700HQ a little bit cooler. Running your laptop fans at max speed can also help.

If your laptop has a 60hz screen, make sure to turn on v-sync or cap frame rate to 60fps to avoid rendering unnecessary frames that will increase CPU and GPU usage and generate more heat.

@BassMan: Thanks for your help. I'm going to try that and i tell you if it worked.

@masterhand: The tempeture is lower now. Now the hotter it gets is 95 degrees, but i don't know if its a secure temp.

@masterhand: The cooler it runs, the better, but laptops always run hot due to everything being packed in so tight and no air flow. I wouldn't worry about it too much as the CPU will thermal throttle to protect itself if the temps get too hot (100+).

@BassMan: The thing is that i don't see thermal throtling when i have high temps, at least with this game.

That's a good thing as the CPU is not being pushed to its thermal limit.

@BassMan: Thanks for the help man. So it's good playing to that temp without being nervous about melting the laptop?

Yes, no worries. My laptop CPU gets into the 90s too.

@BassMan: Just a question. When i undervolt with extreme tuning utility sometimes my pc turns blue and a appears a text that says that windows had a problem and have to restart. Is normal?

If you are getting the blue screen, that means the CPU needs more voltage for stability. Try -0.120 V and see if it is stable. Keep adding a little more voltage until it is stable.
