So I’m running on an i7 Intel quad core chip and this puppy gets HOT . When I’m running Photoshop, streaming internet radio, video, and checking the threads here, I think I can cook an egg on the keyboard.

I’ve seen lots of different external laptop coolers and am using one now that sorta helps but what I think this really needs is some heavy duty cooling system like desktop towers can have.

Is there some sort of additional internal cooling system I can install myself for my laptop or do I just need to make do with external cooling?

Usually the laptop is hot in the bottom. If you can cook an egg on the “keyboard”, that is something wrong with your laptop…

It gets so hot that I can feel the core pumping heat on top and bottom. It’s a common complaint for the i7 core. I just need to know the best way to cool it down.

I have cleaned it several times (opening up the back and using compressed air, etc) but thanks.

No. And I’ve already replaced it with a high end Asus. I’ve had enough of Dell.
