When you say 111 degrees are you meaning C of F?
He has to mean 111 F. If it was C then he would be running over 230 F, meaning his pc would be smoking and probably on fire.
At around 60 C (140 F) your pc will start to lock up, especially when gaming (I know this from experience ). So you need to keep it under that. My pc would run just fine under normal operation but when I started up ET then the temp would shoot up to 60 C. As a general rule, your pc is like your car, the cooler you can keep the air around it the better and more efficient it is going to run and all its parts will last longer. Mine usually is running around 42 or 43 C (108 F). Anything below 45 C (113 F) I think would be just fine.
