CPU throttles when it reaches critical temperatures. Clean your CPU heatsink and try after that.

Yea I am a G53SW user, (more specifically the a1 model). I played the beta bf4 and got playable frame rates 30-40fps on the shanghai map. I updated to the latest nvidia drivers and installed the fully game and now I struggle to get past 20fps.

In fact on 2 occassions temps past crit temp and the system auto-shutdown twice. I have been using throttlestop just to prevent throttling. Temperatues get very hot maxing around 95. I think it auto retarts around this temp too.

I don't think the system is really capable of playing bf4. Temperatures just get too hot...perhaps some people know some tips?
