Put thermal pads on the memory chips. You can alternatively use thermal pads to cool down the GPU but I'd stick with a thermal compound.

Do you think cooling pads work?
I have a few questions about it 1)Does they work properly to remove heat because my laptop is too hot while playing games, so will it help to keep it cool? 2)Does cooling pad blows air in(sucks) or out? 3)my laptop has only few openings under it so will it be effective. Thanks in advance.
