That's pretty pro, how much did that run you? And what's the model? I want to call my local place see if they have any units.

Just go grab one of those laptop coolers, they are USB powered.

I was thinking about grabbing one, but after ditching the old Acer laptop, (Which overclocked nicely) and grabbed a Dell with a Geforce go 7900GS in it, I haven't had the need to overclock. So heat for me ain't a big issue :) Besides its winter! Free heater! :p

I wish I could afford wicked good icepacks like that.

One helpfull tip is to not run your laptop on any sort of fabric, since all it does is absorb heat, and get hotter and hotter.

The picture was still loading and I scrolled down to check out the replies.
Thinking you were all serious and must be pretty leet, I scrolled back up when the picture just finished.
Then I laughed. Hard.
