    I have a new MBA with 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7 with 4GB RAM and Intel HD Graphics 3000 w/ 384 mb.

    When I run Starcraft II on it, the CPU heats up to ~95 C (205 F) and the fans hit ~6400 rpm. Is it alright for me to run the computer at that intensity for long periods of time (like 4-5 hours at a time)? Or will something break down because the computer is too stressed/overloaded?

    This is probably a stupid question but I have to ask because I've never gamed on anything besides a console before and I don't want to do something that might hurt/break my computer.

    Thanks for your help!
