Is this kind of heat from my late 2013 rMBA 15 normal?

    Hey everyone. Just bought a new computer and want to make sure everything is running well and normal with it.

    I've installed borderlands 2 and I have it running on the highest graphics all around and it is running great. I installed istat menu to keep an eye on temp and fan as I noticed some people were having issues with overheating. So while I'm playing the game I see the temp increase to about 90c and then I hear and see the fans kick in which sounds about normal.. And then it kind of fluctuates between 70 and 90c with the fans running at different speeds.

    Is this normal for gaming? Is this healthy for the longevity of my machine?

    Thanks guys!

    That is normal and I would not worry about it. I suppose if you played that game eight hours a day every day, it might make the fans wear out sooner.
