    Cooling Fan Help


    Hi, since I'm thinking of overclocking my CPU for better performance, I thought, "Well instead of overheating my motherboard and destroying a 600 dollar laptop, why not get a cooling fan?" So I went out looking for one. I found this:
    Cooler Master NotePal X3 - Gaming Laptop Cooling Pad with 200mm Blue LED Fan

    Will it work with my 17.3 inch laptop? Please help! If not, can you find me a cheap cooling pad that provides maximum cooling so my laptop wont overheat? Thanks!

    It should work and help somewhat but don't expect miracles eh. They work of USB port so battery time will suffer. It's most important to keep insides of laptop clean and not put it on any soft surfaces that may cover cooling grills underneath.
