[Question] Are laptop coolers worth it?

Imgur

Hello members,

I have a laptop that, under a load such as gaming, can heat up to about 80-90°. A friend of mine has a gaming laptop that goes up to about >90°.

So is it worth buying a cooling pad or even a vacuum cooler?

Cooling pads can definitely help, as long as they’re good quality fans. I use them on all my laptops and you can feel the temperature difference just by touching them, especially if they run hot. Cooler Master makes some good ones. I use the CM NotePal X2 and NotePal X3 on my 2 gaming laptops and have a few more of the cheaper ones for my regular/home use laptops. Check Amazon though as they’re usually cheaper versus buying straight from CM.

Keep laptop elevated with the help of books.
