I own a newer Dell 17r here are my specs. I am wondering if my fan is running to hot when I am playing a game like dirt 3. this is my temp when playing. . what solutions can I do to lower them? Are there any good laptop fans I can put in it that can cool it? Any answers to fix this i would appreciate thanks.

If you're a good diy person I'd suggest just build your own cooler. Get a cheap power plug from a thrift store or something with an output of 12v @500 milliamp or so and wire some desktop fans of your choice to it. Then getting a something like a cookie tray (lots of holes already in it) or a piece of cardboard cutting out the fan spots. I've made my own cooler and it worked much better than any usb solution.
