I'm getting about 95C on my i7 4710-HQ while playing Dying Light and I'm a little concerned... even though Intel says max temp is 100C that still seems a bit high... anyone else have experience with this? (ASUS ROG G751JY-DH71)

I used to see temps that high as well. After a repaste and a 60mv reduction on my CPU it is much better. I get mid 80's with an OC on the GPU as well. One thing to keep in mind is the CPU is thermally bound to the GPU of the 5 heatpipes in the system only 1 is dedicated to the CPU. If you are getting high GPU temps it will adversely affect your CPU temp.
