    It'll run fine. Since the GPU is being stressed, you'll see higher temperatures but your fans will compensate by running faster. If you're planning on gaming, it'll definitely be worthwhile to invest in a cooler.

    No game can "burn down" your "main board". It should run fine.

    If you don't care about your computer, go ahead and burn it down.
    Running Team Fortress 2..will burned the CPU down together with some components from the main board. Either get a new MBP with i7 quad-core and 8GB of memory, or don't run Team Fortress 2..,

    Your laptop will be fine. The GPU will have to work harder causing higher temperatures, but as others have said, fans all speed up to dissipate more heat, however the laptop will STILL get warmer than normal. This is fine.

    If you are really worried, get a cooler for the macbook pro.

    The laptop has built-in heat sensors, and will shut off if the temperature gets too high.

    It's very difficult for you to melt a motherboard, or damage it.

    TF2 will play fine.

    That's ridiculous.

    It runs fine. Elevate your laptop with a stand if you are worried about heat. The laptop will shut down before damage occurs.
