    Hey everyone, my poor gaming laptop has been hitting 94degrees sometimes with all fans on max and sitting on a cheapo fan cooling pad. Does anyone know if and where i can find a water cooled solution?

    Is a gigabyte aero 15

    does the fans conflict with the airflow direction of the laptop? Also expect laptops to see 100C.
    As for water, you would need to have a large flat surface on your laptop that is already used as a heatsink to couple another block to to exchange heat, that doesn't block any existing cooling vents.

    Unless your laptop is already designed to accommodate watercooling, I don't see how you will be able to water cool your laptop.
    Asus had the Asus GX800 that is a watercooling docking station that did the job, but then you loose the portability. It didn't make sense for the price as you could have bought a very high end water cooled desktop for that price.

    How hot does it get without the cheapo cooling pad?
