Keeping cool in 2008

without comments

Ahoy mateys. Apart from having a great start to this year with my external drive dying January 1st, one of my laptops has been overheating to a point where it’s unusable for any graphical or processor-intensive applications.

image My Antec Notebook Cooler arrived bright and early this morning. The unit comes with two modes, quiet and not-so-quiet. Even with the lower fan setting, my laptop is idling at around 70 degrees C instead of 90-100 degrees C without the cooling unit.

I’ll be writing a detailed post on the Antec Cooler’s effect on CPU and HD temperatures in the near future, once I’ve tested the unit for a longer period. No overheats, yet.
