Cooling My Dell Inspiron 5160


Recommended Posts

I have a Dell Inspiron 5160 laptop, I run 2 instances of folding on it and the cpu temp in speed fan hits 73c. I have put Artic Silver 5 on the cpu but even after burning it in the temp hovers at 67c. Any suggestions? I know the Presscots run hot but is there anything to get it cooler...ie after market cooling?

i find that opening my screen & setting my laptop vertical ( so the part touching the floor is V shaped) with a fan blowing on the bottom of it keeps the temps around ~60C @ 100%
