laptop cooler

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

It's a gaming laptop. Temps hit 80-90 easily. Sometimes to 95 ( only for global agenda ). Idles at 60-70. i do clean my laptop with compressed air daily. Will prob take it to a repair shop one day for a look on why temps are so high or maybe they're just normal. Will make do with a cooler for now.
Please help pick.


the 3 fan one.

I have a Notepal U2 that I use for my Satellite and it keeps things nice and cool.

Being able to position the fans is a major plus of the cooler, I'd recommend it. The only downside is that the cabling on the fans is a little weak so you'll want to take care not to pull them accidentally or anything like that.

The Notepal U2 is a good choice though.

really? I'd at least expect someone go for the other one. How many degrees does it take off when you game? u2 <--

I don't have any hard data but the fan on my old Satellite doesn't work very well and the cooler is the difference between my laptop getting very warm to the touch or it staying cool to the touch.

It makes a huge difference, at least in my situation. Being able to position the fans on the laptop vents makes a huge difference.

It is even if it's just raising the computer up.
