Thanks. So is the vent on the side the exhaust, and the one on the bottom the intake? Also i read that using a vacuum can make the fan spin too fast and damage the bearings.

Exactly most all draw from bottom ports and exhaust to the side. The vacuum won't make the fan spin to fast but the blast of air will speed it up and that's why you do multiple short blasts, leaving the vacuum running solid all while the lappy is turned off !

Great Ill try this out at some point. Like i said before i decreased the maximum processor state (advanced power options) from 100% to 99% and it actually seems to have solved the issue. Im not having any fan noise and my cpu temps are all around 50C.

Great and of course a laptop cooler base or like I use a stand works great and in my case lifts the screen up in a way better angle then I use a wireless mouse and keyboard.
