Seeing as how those fans and the heatsinks are usually very small (with close spaced fins), it's likely that they're at least somewhat restricted unless you recently cleaned it out. To clean it out, I recommend turning the laptop off, use something to hold the fan in place to keep it from spinning (something like a toothpick might work) and blow it out using compressed air, both in the intake and the exhaust.
Also, see if you can undervolt your CPU (or even your GPU), a little bit less voltage can make a huge difference in heat output.

I've heard a few things about "dumb" USB devices pulling too much power and burning out USB ports (such as cooling fans, though hopefully Cooler Master builds them a little smarter than that) so I'd (personally) be a little wary of using them. If you know that propping it up works, perhaps look for a passive cooler/raiser instead.SuperSpy wrote:In theory the cooling pad should be much superior, but in practice the fans never seem to line up with the laptop's fan so they normally don't help very much.
I have Lenovo Y570 with Gt555m video, and while normally its enough to run all games on high-ish settings.
But it has cooling problems, I solved this earlier by replacing thermal paste, but after several months heat problems are back.
Basically unless I have laptop elevated soon after starting almost any game or heavy graphics soft, stuttering and slow downs occur and speedfan shows me 80c on GPU, even idle C is f-ed up 47.
wish I had spend few hundred more and got gaming lap, but anyway.
I was thinking maybe cooling pads could help? has anyone used them before?
I'm considering buying this one

thanks for any suggestions
