Normal laptop CPU temp?

I've been playing game like the Wildstar beta recently and decided to check the CPU temp on my Asus N550JV laptop. Is this normal? http://i.imgur.com/NKHsWIK.png
Feel like it might be a bit too high. This was after I alt+tabbed it for a bit to look at the temps...

I had some issues with my fan not going on at all before cause I had a program called Speedfan installed (it couldn't recognize my laptop's motherboard and decided the best thing to do would be to disable my fans...). Now I feel as if the fans are only on low and I'm not sure how to check the fan's speed or even check if the fans are on fully. I've sprayed out the vents recently, but haven't wanted to risk opening up my laptop...

Totally normal on an intel chip. They are generally safe up to 100c. Sometimes laptop fans won't run until your cpu or gpu reaches a certain temp.

Should I be safe to bump up the graphics a bit? I had them set to low in Wildstar when I took that picture.

Yeah. Use MSI afterburner or overclocking software of your choice to overclock. As long as you don't go crazy with it you'll be fine. Just bump it up 50MHz at a time on the core clock and test with furmark for stability. If it crashes go lower until you find a good setting.

Edit: Thought you meant overclock the GPU. You'll definitely be safe to bump up the graphics settings a bit. Use whatever settings work best and don't worry about temps unless they are reaching into the upper 90's or up into the 100's.

I'd actually prefer not to overclock this thing. I have a desktop that I do actual gaming on. This is mostly just for notes in class and for when I go home during breaks (wish I could take my desktop home each time :p )
