Not to worry my friend.
Your laptop is configured while using an external monitor, that the lid may be closed (or open) all the times.
But, you should keep a eye on temps, you may see a slight (not much) rise in temps.
While using the laptop in this fashion (with the lid closed) it will trap some heat that escapes from the keyboard.
You may hear the fans working more than usually to compensate for the extra heat.
So monitor your temps to be on the safe side my friend.

Hope this answers your question my friend?
Good luck, and good gaming!

Hey Hey, thanks tons!

In gaming (heavy games at high settings) my temperatures are between 70-80oC, are these normal?

Your welcome, and yes your temps are looking good.
I'm averaging about the same temps on my JZ (high 60'S for average, and high 70 to 80 for highs)
