Notebook boiling! Hi all i have a problem here regarding two acer laptops. (not mine, my housemates). I'll give you the simple list of both specs: Intel Core Duo 1.66GHZ x Intel Core 2 Duo 2.00GHZ Both of them 1GB DDR2 RAM 100GB HDD x 120GB HDD Both of them also using ATI MR X1600 HM 512MB Both DVD-RAM Dual Layer Both laptops placed in a well 20*C air-conditioned room Well i think those simple specs will do.. Now to the topic, both these laptops operate at 70*C (CPU) and 50*C (HDD) at idle while it reach 100*C for gaming or some other tasks. I know maybe this is probably caused by ATI itself, as when you exit the games (both 2D and 3D) the temp will drop 15*C in 2 seconds. I have monitor the CPU clock speed, GPU clock speed, and they're operating as usual. Both of them are at normal clock speed, not overclocked, but the standard clock speed for ATI in wikipedia is lower by 30mhz and 25mhz (core & memory). So do i need to 'underclock both of them'? Now is the question: How can i make those laptops cool? `I have the laptop 4cm up. `I have placed a double fan exactly under the laptop to cool it down `Both of the laptops are new, so the fan is clean Co-incidentally, there is another new acer laptop using Intel Core Duo 1.60GHZ without ATI X1600 here, and it does not operate this hot. Anyone have suggestion how to reduce the temp of these laptops? All your suggestion are really appreciated.
