Higher ping and Lag

Ever since I made the switch from iLoL to the new LoL Mac client, I've had a lot more problems:

-I've noticed my ping has increased by 15.
-It's not only that, but the max FPS I reach is now only a 30 on the new client, whereas on the iLoL client it was 70.
-My computer heats up to higher temperature (It hit 80 and now sometimes it goes to 88. I have SMC Fan Control running during both).
-I get a pixelated game screen as the game hits 20-25 minutes sometimes.
-I get severe lag sometimes. After one or two games, my FPS tends to drop to 10-15 and it's almost impossible to play.

I've only been playing ARAM games recently, if that's important. I'd just like to know if there's a way I can solve these problems as of now. And unfortunately, a cooling mat is out of the question to cool down my computer. What graphic settings could I reduce it to to make it better or what can I do in general?

Here are my system specs:

Mac OS X: 10.7.5
Processor: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256 MB
Memory: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3

I don't have anything running in the background when I play LoL either.
