^good point. It also makes ur lappy less mobile with less battery life, but he probably doesn't get good battery life as it is because it is an older P4.

With using notebook hardware monitor my temps have dropped massively. It comes with profiles that basically underclock the processor when not in use or all resources are not needed. So I go froma 1.7Ghz 1.3v to 600mhz .98v on slower times like now actually. With that my comp stays at about 57C and sometimes 60C but rarely.

I bought a padded laptop holder. It's sold at Office Depot and has a nice bean bag bottom and a LARGE surface. Big enough for my 17" and has a lip that directs the heat away from your legs. Also, I use canned air on a regular basis on all the fans (3 total).

Recently, I found a BIOS setting which turns off the fans when the internal temp drops. That made a big difference. Stock from the factory, all fans are going all the time.
