Laptop cooling?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi
I have an Acer Aspire 5742 and whenever i run games the proccessor get up to and stays at 95-ish degrees centigrade. I think this is because it's an i5 so the graphics are handled by the proccessor aswell (i dont have a graphics card)
Now i'm no expert but 95 seems to much, so i was wondering is it possible to upgrade the cooling on a laptop and if so does anyone know any good ones that are compatible.

Thanks

I use the Arctic NC on my Sager NP9130 that has a i7 2670QM in it and it idles in the mid 40s, loads into the mid 70s.

Also if you can, change the TIM. Makes a few C difference.

95 isn't that bad for a laptop, laptop processors are a bit different with TDP etc so I wouldn't worry about that.

Upgrading the cooling is rather difficult on a laptop, it'd be easier to make sure the exhaust has a clear space to blow the air out and if that's not enough, remove all the dust from the fan for that can also affect the temperature by a few degrees. You can get mats and stands that have fans built in to help.

To be honest though if you're hitting 95 on your laptop, it means it's hitting it's thermal barrier, by cleaning it or making it run cooler will just mean you'll get a few more FPS before it hits 95 again.

That looks good but i was hoping to replace the internal fan.

Just take it apart and clean it then. Replace the TIM then too.
