Your main problem here is not the GPU itself, but the CPU. OC the GPU on G55 will heat-up the CPU as well.

Use NvidiaInspector, OC the P0 state GPU clock and apply.

The use HWiNFO64 to keep an eye on temps and clocks.

The start Prime95 with Blend and let it run for 20min.

Start Furmark and run Burn-in test with 1920x1080 and 8xMSAA for another 10 min. while Prime is running.

See temps and decide if it's OK or not.

1) Make sure you play when plugged in - on battery will cause lower power modes
2) Uninstall McAfee
3) Update your graphics and sound drivers to the latest available
4) Generally speaking - don't use wireless when playing online. D3 requires constant authentication even in single player.

I was sure the CPU and GPU had each their cooling block and fan, even though they use the same vent shaft? Why would then OCing the GPU cause the CPU to heat up more?

Maybe they are just too close. I don't know exactly, I'm just saying what happend on different laptops.

Even in desktop machines causing extra heat output in one component can cause another to run a bit warmer. Inside the extremely limited space of a laptop case this is only exacerbated.

True. I remember my last desktop case had different compartments for CPU and GPU. Good old extreme OC days.
