Thermal paste you apply on your GPU/CPU. Lowers core temps

Lak3rsFan, I've read these 7750G's can be a real beeyatch to tear apart. My temps aren't bad at idle or running games. I'm not willing to break the case just to put Artic Silver on it. Good luck if you try.
I've searched high and low for some kind of dissemble guide/manual with no result.

Look here what x.treme encountered (2/3 down page): http://forum.notebookreview.com/acer...-thread-3.html

I use a can of compressed air to blow out the vents and fan every week or two. Much easier

Love seeing the dust fly!

Hahahaha me too!

Just for my info..

Can you post your temps for me?

At idle: I'm about 40-45

When playing WoW: 50-65

Just wanna see how I fall in the spectrum.

I assume your talking GPU temps. That's about exact to mine, no WoW but have Amnesia which is pretty intensive and reads the same as you. I'm one of the few adventure gamers left.

You do realize you can increase default fan speed in OverDrive and get more custom fan settings with AfterBurner?

Really? So I should download overdrive and Afterburner? Are they freeware?

You can enable OverDrive in CCC using MSI AfterBurner and also use AfterBurner as a stand alone. I like the CCC interface myself. Wait a few and I will link to another post I made on how to do it.
