I think you need to need to add a few more tags ;)

We got the belkin one and works well on a 15" laptop but not so well with large 17" screen sized laptop,

Similar ones available in poundland. Good for when those really intelligent laptop designers decided to put the air intake underneath the laptop.

A great, and free, way to knock 10-20 degrees off your laptop is to undervolt it. It's done through software and works a treat. Google it. The program you need is "rightmark cpu clock utility".

Unfortunately I don’t think it works with Core i3/5/7 CPUs unless it’s been updated recently.

this is not from amazon but a marketplace seller so voting cold i'm afraid

Get the Belkin cooler instead...

"there may be cheaper prices for this particular model but can't be bothered to look!"

1.) I have this one and apart from a slight weak kickstand ( which drops backwards if pushed while laptop on), it cools the hot laps right down...

2.) For hi speed usb device (i.e harddrives) you need to connect adapter to power the cooler. Otherwise you can use lower power devices to sync and stuff.

3.) Great ergonomically design and nicely shaped for the lap.

Thanks for that recommendation - i have overheating issues so I just installed this software on your recommendation, but dont understand what I need to do now?! Do I just run it and let it do its thing or are there particular settings I need/boxes to tick?!

Many thanks

Use with caution: if they blow air across the underside of the laptop, they might do more harm than good by blowing dust into your machine

Just ordered the Belkin cooler last week from Amazon. Bootcamp overheats my Macbook even at 6000rpm when gaming so was an essential purchase for me. The extra usb ports swung it for me as if I use the cooler and external HD I have no usb ports left for mouse etc.

I'm asumming the usb ports on the belkin will be sufficient for a mouse/keyboard but can you power a flash drive with it?

If your laptop overheats and it's new, it's faulty, and should be returned for something better designed.

If your laptop overheats but didn't used to, it's just got clogged airvents. Buy a can of compressed air and fire it through the vents to clear it out.

These cooling bases do nothing good, and long term, they'll probably just cause your laptop to die sooner. Don't buy it.

You can get these for a pound! You can even get a better one for cheaper on ebay so not hot from me

But not so good if you've designed/made your own laptop?

You can buy a similar thing in poundland £4.79 cheaper.

I bought one and it is tiny which is fine for my Netbook which sits on the floor connected to a monitor.
Too small for a laptop though I imagine.

Bought it. Thanks!

RM Clock sadly doesn't now recognise a lot of the newer CPU's and those that it does depend on the lower voltage limit that is imposed.
My Athlon 64 3200+ has a lower limit of 1.1V for all multiplier but I have seen the pentium M chips go down to 0.7V. My Core 2 Duo is 0.9V from memory.

Either way if it works for your chip then its a great addition although needs some trial and error to make sure its stable

This is the guide I used:

http://forum.notebookreview.com/hardware-components-aftermarket-upgrades/235824-undervolting-guide.html

It's pretty simple really but does involve a bit of trial and error to find the lowest stable voltage for your cpu. I got mine down from 1.25V to 1.0V and now my laptop is a lot cooler and quieter :)

wouldn't this be much better?

My laptop is about three years old and keeps on getting very hot (started about a month ago) do you think a can of compress air would really work and cause no damage to my laptop??

i just got mine today looks a bit grubby but appears to be working my laptop appears to be 4/5 degrees cooler
