Is there any way to improve the thermal performance of this laptop?

Whenever I play video games for 30minutes+ my computer's CPU can get to temperatures as high as 96 degrees Celsius.

I forgot to mention that I have already cleaned it out, so dust is not a problem.

Are you comfortable with opening the laptop and removing the heat pipe from the cpu? It's held on by screws and thermal paste. Replace the thermal paste on the CPU and GPU with a small dab of arctic silver 5. A lot of times OEM's cake on thermal paste and after a while it breaks down and becomes chalky. It will in turn act as an insulator. I've done this to plenty of laptops in the past with great results.
