Yeah of course, I use a one-piece standard size chess board (like right now), but sometimes I CBA to get it out. On topic, I was just watching a 720p movie streamed to my laptop from my desktop, Matroska container, h.264 codec in GOM Media Player. Temp was stable at around 72-74ºC, and that is in Power Saver mode. And the chess board.
Now that I've finished with the movie and back to surfing a bit before I turn the lights off and go to sleep, it's at 54-56ºC.
