Hey guys, I know many of you might not use a laptop for gaming, I am finding keeping mine cool a problem on certain games. I was wondering if anyone here could reccomend the best cooling stands/anything I can use bar liquid nitrogen to keep its temperature down!

Raise it on a book at the back until you get a stand, works for me. Also clean the vents and if you can take it apart ie not in warranty then clean inside. I personally charge my battery to 95-100% then remove it as I think heat is bad for the battery, as long as its not low/0% when you remove it should be ok but someone with better battery knowledge can answer that.

Or four bottle caps under each corner works :P

If its a fairly recent laptop it should have an option somewhere in the power management software to say charge to 80% then keep it there, makes the battery last longer and keep cooler
As for a laptop stand i use this http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing- ... 2-pdt.html
Nice and light, comfortable and the fan is fairly decent

I used to use one of these, before I got my desktop. Works very well, practically silent too.

PS. it's for sale if you want a second hand one :p

Have you tried pouring some cold water onto it to cool it down Ross? :P
