Laptop Exhaust Ports on the Sides; How To Cool?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello-

I just bought http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215261. It has an i7 and a discrete graphics card. However, the exhaust ports are on the left side of the laptop rather than on the bottom. When I play any games, there is no heat coming out of the bottom, rather, all the heat is leaving from the side. Any suggestions on a laptop cooler that will work for me? I don't think the conventional fan on the bottom will make any difference. Thanks.

You should have intake ports on the bottom.

Thus, any cooler with fans should supply air to the intake ports.

I got a Cooler Master U3 laptop cooler and it's pretty awesome for the price.
