Default Anyway to get my LT to run a little cooler?

I know it sits on the couch a lot, but still.. I'll keep it to open air and it still spits out some pretty hot air..

I take it I can't mess with the CPU fan speeds.

It's a HP G60 with an AMD Athlon CPU.

Not really. Then again, it better to have the heat out as appose to in.

Best thing to do is purchase a Cooling Pad for your laptop. I am using one of these guys

Probably just a pad filled with material that helps pull heat away from a centralized source.

Ahh... I've been wanting a chill pad, but haven't gotten around to getting one.

So, so ginormous heat sink upgrades for a laptop, eh? lol!

+ 1 for the Cooling Pad..

Also if I remember something from my A+ prepping, I remember it mentioning in the Mike Meyer's book that Laptop's run cooler when on something solid (also try to avoid putting it on your lap when you have shorts on )

My friend did that b4
