Could it be faulty ram causing this overheating? I did not think it would be an issue because I saw a marked performance in my gaming and the system registered 6GB total ram. Could it be possible that compatibility issues exist? Or should i open up the back of my laptop casing and try to clean the fan/heatsink?
