GPU cooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My laptop has had overheating issues for awhile now. ASUS m50SA Core 2 Duo 2.50GHZ and a HD3650.

I've begun to throttle the CPU and turn down the voltage but the GPU still idles around 62C. When in a game it gets VERY hot, it's like a radiator in my room. Any ideas on how I can lower the temp of my GPU? I have a laptop cooling pad already btw.

Fan inside working fine, and already dropped 45 bucks on a cooler. Any other ideas?

underclock the gpu, replace the tim, and clean out the dust.
