I am not a fanatical gamer by any means but even when running simple games i seem to get a lot of heat.
During Duke Nukem 3D even after just a few minutes the temperature was up to 50*C. Now i wouldnt have thought games like duke nukem etc would have required that much power to run them, but either way im getting some high heat output.
How do people deal with this heat? I know there are mats etc with built in fans but do these really do much good? Ive always seen them as a bit of a gimic. My room is not hot, i always have windows open etc and the laptop is raised an inch from the surface so there is plenty of air circulaton.
Are there any other ways of keeping laptops cool under load?
Using the cooling pad is the most comom and easy way to keep the system cool.
