My idle temperatures are 40-48 degrees celsius while when I'm playing, the temperatures go up to 80+ degrees but it doesn't go up 90 degrees. My driver is GeForce GTX 960m.

Hello Raceen,

 

Those temps are to be expected when gaming on a notebook due to the confined space and single cooling fan that most notebooks have, if you do a lot of gaming on the notebook consider investing in a notebook cooler and preferably one that does not use a USB port to power it, some to look at here

Prolonged use of the notebook at those temps will not do the hardware any good but as said the temps are normal for a notebook under load, using a notebook cooler as suggested would help, stock notebooks are not really ideal for gaming I`m afraid.
