Cooler for Asus G73Jw? - Page 2

Picture please? Another awesome idea.
I can't find the charger cord for my camera, but there is only one panel on the bottom that's about 9.5"x6". Clips on three sides and two screws on the fourth. Lose the screws and cut a quarter inch strip of velcro tape about 9" long and put one side along the edge of the panel and the other side along the edge of the enclosure on the laptop. You might not even need it though, like I said, it clips in on three sides... I did it so long ago I can't remember why I did it exactly.

[EDIT] Here is my a pic of my G73JH-RBBX0's temps with the cooler in the pic, mind that I have the original lousy TIM job. It's been running for over 3 hours.

I haven't heard any reports of the JW units having the same TIM issues as the JH units. Great choice none the less, IC will lower your temps 2~5'C and give you some more OC head room.

Haha, I know right! Another + is that the fans can be replaced as well, so if you've got some nicer fans to throw in there you can. If I actually had a use for one I would buy it in a heartbeat

I realized last night that I didn't have the back panel off when I tested the temps. So I retested the temps today with the panel off and my homemade cooler. Still just 3dm06 @ 1280x768, forced 4AA and MLAA [10.10c]

ACPI: -4c to 37c
CPU: About the same, a little lower @ idle. This is because of where the vent on the panel is located.
GPU load: -5c to 71c [GPU was stock for all tests, 700/1000]
HDD: -6c to 25c and 28c
