i remeber one time it hittin 95C but thats cuz i had the vent covered. bad thing from my side, but dont mind since i have accidental warranty on my laptop!
I think your temps should be fine. Just watch if it gets above 90, but I have read some places that lower than 90 is fine as long as the other components dont heat up due to that.

Mind if I ask what a cryo is

I would myself, but I am overseas for a 3 months.
I upgraded mine myself and got me a Panasonic and replaced the faceplate and works perfect. It was $210 on ebay back then

The Zalman is awesome! 10-15 degrees at least on the GPU when gaming as well as 8 off the CPU's. At idle there is about a 4 degree drop of the GPU and a 7 degree drop on the CPU.

Look a few posts above, shifty has installed a Bluray drive already.

Doesn't your laptop have a bluetooth receiver anyways?

Haha... I think I should add a section to the original post for compatible bluray drives which would make things a lot easier

Take your current drive out and see if it's Sata or EIDE. The P-6860 has an EIDE and most drives seems to be identical in shape too
