You may get more response if you try a computer gaming forum. This forum, whilst it has members with knowledge covering a wide range of subjects, is mainly focussed on Olympus and m4/3 photography.

Good luck,

John

Re: Best Cooling Pads for laptop

Is that Laptop new? If it's old and it's now overheating, suggest you reapply the thermal paste. If it's still new, suggest you bring it back to the place of sale. Something
could wrong.

Re: Best Cooling Pads for laptop

I read the introduction of this article: (Link removed) I decided to purchase this Notepal L1, I think it has a good cooling function.

Link removed, not really relevant to this forum - Admin.

Re: Best Cooling Pads for laptop

Some time back I tried using a cooling pad and found it more trouble than it was worth. Needed charging, or cables trailing around. I also found after a while the whine from the dual fans quite annoying.

My current solution is to use a glass decorative plate as used in the kitchen or on dining tables. Felt pads stuck on the bottom give an air gap and it can be stuck in a bag with the lappie. I've also placed felt pads to the underside of the laptop so the air can be more easily sucked in and out by the laptop. All-in-all, I've raised the depth of the gear combo by around 3/8th of an inch.

I'm running a Lenove i7 QC Y560 which has a cleaning App built in and the weekly 2 minutes dust busting works a treat. In 2&1/2 years, with running BOINC medical apps for 12 hours per day, I've never had an over-heating problem.

As a bonus I've taken the liberty of adding a link with tips on how to speed up slow laptops.
