BF3 is a way more intensive game and I run that at 55-60c at full load where star wars runs at 75. ***

'Cause this game is hot!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I've seen overheating complains around the forum. Not sure if there's an answer or solution.

Same issue, except the overheating causes my computer to shut off. After about 30-45 minutes of play time, my computer shuts down due to gpu overheating. I play Skyrim just fine with no overheating issues at all. This game doesn't seem nearly as graphic intensive as Skyrim... I have a GTX 460 btw.
