Windows 7: Any good laptop coolers out there?

Any good laptop coolers out there?

While I'm satisfied with the temperatures that my MSI GT680R is receiving (near 82C under "heavy" load), I'd like to try and see if I can lower them just to male myself feel a little better. I've already been using the laptop on a Rain Design mStand.

I've seen some $50 coolers on Newegg, all with mixed results. Can't seem to find anything that'll bring temperatures down by anything more than 2-5C. I know that they'll only keep the bottom cover cool, but maybe there's something out there that actually does work that I haven't found yet.

Hi, besweet, pretty much any cooler you would like to buy is going to help but, in my estimation, if you are elevating your laptop with a wire stand or something similar, they are a waste of money. If you are setting the laptop flat on your desk and desire not to elevate it as I just mentioned, any of the coolers will serve you well...

Hi Besweeet, I have been using a Thermaltake Massive23 notebook cooler on my HP DV7.
Newegg.com - Thermaltake Massive23 ST 23cm fan Notebook Cooler Model CLN0009

Its not as high as your Rain mStand, but like mikedl said, if its just a stand then there is no active cooling. The Fan in the Massice23 is very quite and pushes a lot of air, and not a bad price for 30 bucks.

Mixed reviews on that one. Lots of people saying that it doesn't seem to bring down the temperatures. But, I guess I'll never know if I try it out . I'll order it later this afternoon.
