are those temperatures safe?

    Those temps are fine. More powerful hardware easily reaches 70-80C under full load (stress testing), which are still safe temps, you don't have to worry until it starts getting closer to 90C under full load.
    Those temps are a little high for gaming though, but probably not unusual for a laptop.
    Maybe run a stress test like AIDA64, it shows you if the CPU is getting hot enough to throttle.
    If that isn't enough to get your CPU to run hot and throttle, then nothing will.
    Not that throttling is necessarily a bad thing, some computers are designed to throttle.

    That's about the temperature of my Desktop. Should be safe for the laptop. Whether it's safe for you kinda depends on how hot it feels.

    That is probably due to them being CPU- and GPU-intensive games. They require more from your computer and therefore makes the computer work harder resulting in higher temperatures.

    This is not an issue, but if you're bugged by it, just lower the graphical settings.

    i have a i7 5500u in my main rig and i recommend a fan that sits on the bottom of your laptop the one i have is cooler master fan and it is cheap and has great build qualty and cools it of pretty well and my die has more cores and threads than yours does so it should cool yours off even better
