This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Laptop cooling pad. Seems decently priced in comparison to a lot of the others on Amazon. Looks like it works well as a stand, as well as for cooling, and has a high RPM for the main fan, and also has 5 fans total (which should provide coverage for the vents of most laptops).

Good deal and decent reviews
These can also be used to cool the overheating Sky Q boxes.
Nice deal comes in green too to match my Borg cube pc!

I've thought about water cooling ours, not just the main box either
Waste of time
cools the plastics not the CPU

in summer? yes
in winter? probably not a good idea
Had a good few of these personally not that great these coolers are just not powerful enough to bring down any real major heat IMO

Looks cool, suppose you could put it under a PS4 for extra boost as well. Voted HOT
Well.... most of the time these do very little and not worth buying in general, laptops are running hotter due to the general design and nature my 2 cents is to clean your machine once i do not know every two years depending on the usage and change thermal paste for something like thermal grizzly this will give you benefits for me cold as it is a gimmick you can add the extra noise too as these are cheap fans

fair, but to be honest, the majority of people (myself included) will never have the confidence or the urge to change thermal paste, or open up the machine for cleaning.

I did some googling before buying to check whether these coolers are worth buying, and the verdict i kept seeing is that it has a small beneficial effect - i mean even using the cooler to raise the laptop of a surface, without switching the fans on, should have a beneficial effect to air flow.

overall, its a small investment of £19, to have a small positive effect on the laptop, which could help it last longer in the long run.

well if u want a laptop rise and using it as a desktop maybe yes, long time ago I use 4 coca cola tops to rise and and improve the airflow, it all depend on your laptop if u have no vents at the bottom and the air is taken from the sides this will make no difference ,performance wise it has no effect , no point dropping temps by 3 degrees as it does not make sense, my point is you can watch a youtube video spend an hour to maintain your machine it is not hard tbh people think electronics are fragile but in real world it takes something stupid to wreck it, you can probably lower temps by anything from 15 to 20 degrees just by doing this as the stock goo is design to last for a looooong time so it compromises on heat exchange factor
Latest Dell business laptops have terrible cooling. They get worryingly hot. The vents are most of the bottom and they have like 1mm clearance!
I leave something under the back to raise it like 6mm and it cools back down to normal. Even turns the fan down. Bad airflow design.

This unit would solve the Dell problem!

For those saying laptop cooling pads don't work, if you have a gaming laptop with vents on the bottom for intake they absolutely do work.

You'll get lower temperatures which usually results in longer sustained turbo boosts to the CPUs, and higher GPU clocks, additionally the fans are quieter than the fans inside the laptop themselves, so as the system is cooler the laptops internal fans ramp up less.

For a cheap price they absolutely make a difference, try one and see

Yeah depends where the vents are as you say it will help but not a great deal but every bit counts on an overheating DELL D630 with the notorious Nvidia overheating graphics chips - BGA nightmare just ask Louis Rossman lol!

Did you see the Louis Rossman vid where he reacts to Jayztwocents? The part where he hissed had me in hysterics!

Back to the thread, cooling pads make a difference, sometimes as much as 10 degrees. Jarrodstech made a great vid about it about a month ago
for those looking at this cooler, here's a simple (and not as scary as it sounds) way to undervolt your pc to reduce temps and improve performance:

The fans on my laptop whilst idle are about this speed and quite quiet

This costs £19 and is a "workaround" although not as good , as changing thermal paste and proper maintenance. We as a store only charge £35 for a full strip down and maintenance and thermal paste, so the extra £10 is very much worth investing

While your full £35 service would be better than this workaround, the cost isn't just an extra £10 because I assume that paste would need to reapplied, I guess every 1-2 years or so? So this workaround is £19 one time cost whereas using a service would be a continuing cost?
I can't believe people are sat here debating the value of this deal. If you don't like the deal then don't bother commenting. It's a good deal for a laptop cooling mat! No one is asking you to evaluate the effect of a laptop cooling mat.

The thermal paste we use is rated at a 7 year service lifespan

Ah OK that's a lot longer than I expected! How long after purchasing a new laptop do you guys recommend getting the thermal paste changed?

It’s difficult to put a specific time frame because some don’t have properly applied paste from the factory - we do usually suggest approx 3-4 years after purchase however
