This is a laptop not a desktop, components get packed jam inside a laptop so temperatures affect all parts. Processors will throttle at about 105c, the issue isn't the processor it's the surrounding components. In my testing I've fried 6/6 laptop motherboards by replicating 105c temperatures in hotboxes (cardboard boxes with no ventilation, sealed with duct tape with 3 temp diodes) while putting the laptop on load. 3 Intel systems (Core 2 duo's) 3 AMD Systems One of the AMD systems had failing ram module however the ram unfortunately was not tested before so it could have been there. All 6 motherboards had thermals replaced, as well as new cmos batteries prior to testing. Oddly enough, on all 3 Intel laptops the USB ports failed before the motherboard died. The motherboards worked fine while idle. It's one thing to survive at 105c but only feeding 3/10ths of your power envelope to components and running at 105c but feeding 8/10ths of your power envelope. Power systems flat out are not capable of getting anywhere near 105c, and in laptops I am afraid it is a reality.
