Cooling/Quieting A monster Laptop
by Kingkool68 on Jan 10, 2005 at 6:06:07 pm
I have a Clevo D470W (http://www.clevo.com.tw/products/D470W.asp) **My Specs are in my user profile** that I have had for just over a year. I upgraded the RAM from 512 to 1 gig and ever since then I have been noticing the fans are going all the time. I was looking around the internet for any fans I could upgrade to inorder to help cool/quiet down this beast, but I haven't found anything. The best solution I have found is to raise the back end of my laptop 2 inches to get better circulation. I just need some advice on what I can do to get this monster laptop under control and not be so loud. These past couple of weeks I was wishing I had a desktop so I didn't have to worry about this. Any tips are welcome.

It is not unusual for laptops to overheat during rendering. keeping air flowing underneath often solves the issue. Laptops should be very quiet. I would open the case and inspect the fan and its installation.
