Hey everyone. I have a Precision M2400, and it's been running pretty well for about 18 months, but it's always had a heat problem. I never really noticed it before, but somehow the GPU, a Quadro 370 (m, of course) is overheating. This isn't just dust or poor transfer, though. I just cleared out the fans, cleaned the heatsinks, replaced the terrible thermal pad with Ceramique, and it still overheats. It's not due to poor conduction, either, as the entire six-inch copper sink will heat up. Even underclocked from 580Mhz to 145 Mhz, it still gets up to 70 degrees by simply playing a movie on Netflix in fullscreen.
So, since the GPU is kind of hot, I was wondering if there was a nice way to give the current cooling system a kick in the pants. If it were my desktop, I'd just add a big-ass fan, but I'm not too familiar with laptops. Am I able to buy a new, super-powered fan that can replace the current one, as well as a better heatsink, or am I just SOL and have to buy a cooling pad?
