They always heat up more under heavy load. After extended game playing, they can get downright hot, and the fans will run noticeably faster and louder.

It's normal for our laptops to get hotter after extended game playing.
But I would recommend you set your power plan to "high performance" when playing.
(My G74 is actually always set to "high performance" when on AC power.)

Try using the HWiNFO64 program to monitor GPU and CPU temperature.
(Tick the "sensor-only" to monitor them.)

Just report the temps here, and other owners can let you know if they seem normal.
