I have a 6 inch fan that clips on to the table on which I have my laptop.. I point the fan at the bottom and rear of the laptop where the fan intake is located.
Also you can reduce the temp by choosing another power plan. The downside of that is that then you might not have enough processor power.
WIN key + X | in the section showing a battery you can select from 3 different power plans, namely Balanced, Power Saver, and High Performance. When I use my laptop in an area that is warm/hot then I choose Power Saver. Be sure and do NOT put your laptop on your lap. When you do, there is a high probability that you are blocking either the fan intake or the fan exhaust or both.
