That is..wow!

What's your temperature like now? Have you cleaned everywhere else?

I've had my laptop on for about an hour, doing some programming and it's at 45C.

Hard-drive or CPU?

HDD.
My CPU was between 50 and 60C.
I've never seen it rest that low

The CPU seems to be quite normal, I'm on 55*C after watching some videos on YouTube. Have you tried raising the back of the laptop slightly?

I don't put my laptop on a desk.
I use it on my lap with my legs touching my laptop as little as possible on the sides so the two "in" fans on the bottom are almost completely unobstructed.

My hard drive is no where near a fan.
It's towards the bottom of my laptop.

And yes, I cleaned everywhere I could see or at least blow air through.
I really got the fans good, the vents as well.

Okay good, leave this thread open for about a week, and then mark it has solved if you feel there is no other problems.

Alright.
I'll let you know.
I'm gonna do some more stress tests and such every once in a while to see if I'm able to make a BSOD happen.

Thank you for all your help ^_^
