Trying to decide which cooler to pick from and will last me a good thing...bought U2 a week ago from amazon..fourth day- it can no longer keep my idle temps in the 50s sadly and the fans are failing. Returning them tomorrow.

My laptop is 17inches as well. It already has little stands on it's bottom so it doesn't fully touch any flat surfaces. I can afford up to 20-30 dollars. but i'm willing to pay up to 30 for something actually worth 30.
