I have a DigitalStorm Veloce laptop that costed me about $1,777. 
All my games, especially Heroes and Generals have such low fps [around 20-30], and on top of that, stuttering. The stuttering is like a slight pause every half-second or so. Any help?

https://www.dropbox.com/s/d8x4nzkrk988f5e/Screenshot%202014-08-14%2018.15.31.png 

I don't trust HWMonitor's numbers as the shutdown point for the CPU is 100C, and yet it's showing temps of 90-100C, hence the SpeedFan next to it [which reports 80C temps] 

And then again, same stuttering and low fps. 
Note though, when I initially spawned, gameplay was really smooth, no stuttering, and around 60fps. But then after a minute, it starts stuttering and getting low 20-30fps

Anyways, here are the specs:

Welcome,

My first guess with a stutter is that your Internet connection speed isn't keeping up with your game play.

My second thought is that being connected to the Internet without protection is a sure route to infection

My internet is fine. It does this even while offline gameplay, could it be my CPU is getting too hot?

Hi,

Yes, a hot CPU will cause problems and extended periods of overheating will kill the CPU

Hi, I just applied a new thermal paste on both the GPU and CPU. [oh and there was quite a bit of dust block airflow in the heatsink, so i removed almost all of it, so maybe that played a part?]
The gameplay stopped having those stutters! But oddly enough the temperatures stayed roughly the same, if not just wee bit worse? 
Upon boot, temperatures were 67C-72C (minimum), and during gameplay temperatures were 99C-100C (maximum). 

The compound I used were Antec Formula 6, and I followed this video on Youtube () since this would be my first time applying [and it was intimidating! Scared I would destroy something].

With temperatures like that I would look at getting a cooling pad or some other assistance for your system. Running any of the components at or near max will destroy the component and have a negative effect on others.

What are your ambient temps? 67c at startup is too high for me.
