Hi I recently bought a used Asus G50VT-X1 off of craigslist and the previous owner cut open the bottom circle grate to allow air flow there. I havent had any severe overheating issues, but I worry about it a lot lol and I kinda freak out when cpu temp peaks like 150 lol...But anyways, there is nothing covering the open grate, so I accidentally bent the fans' rod that connects to the electromagnet spinning it. It works still but is noisy. I have a few options; buying a new internal fan (would rather not break it again), inserting a wire mesh in the grate (dont want to...), liquid cooling (too difficult, limited customizing of computer parts). So anyways I decided on getting a laptop cooling pad. Unless you have a better alternative to the pad, what pad does Sevenforums think I should get, for under 60$, that is EXTREMELY quiet, provides great cooling, and cools mainly the left side of the device?
I can get the notepad u3 but im skeptical...
I can afford a little extravagance though (up to 60$....)
Oh and id also like it to be externally powered, so as not to use computer power (generating heat), to cool it.
Sorry for the really long post, but any helpful answers would be appreciated!
