I use my asus rog gl552 to play mostly ps3 games (sleeping dogs, bioshock, skyrim, etc). I enjoyably play these games on their lowest settings but find that the fan area of my laptop still becomes quite hot. Last week I asked this site if I would be able to play a more demanding game such as assassin's creed unity and the answer was yes (on medium settings). Why would I be recommended a more demanding game on higher settings when my laptop already gets pretty hot with lesser games on lower settings? Am I overreacting to the heat? Is there something I can do to cool my laptop while I game?

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz, Intel64

The ASUS ROG 552 laptop appears to come with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

There were some articles recently about Windows 10 causing overheating in some laptops, so it's possible that yours is having that problem.
