This is a laptop right?

Are your fans running? Try downloading speedfan and see if it recognizes them. Also, make sure you aren't blocking the vents when playing.

Most likely a fan isn't working properly and in a laptop, that can make the thing heat up very fast. Get it fixed before you overheat and damage your system.

I also saw this from a user with the same machine:

i’ve been using this for a very long. I love it. I’ve had no problem with it besides overheating which i sloved by removing the buttom faceplate and putting it on a good heavy duty cooling pad
