Re: Looking for a laptop rest with fans venting up.

I've just came in to set this topic as 'Fixed' but I don't see any option to do this, I assume as a result of it being in the General Chat. So can I ask a mod (maybe @Mav or @dvorak who are online now) to please to move this to the "Tech Help" forum please.

Looking for a laptop rest with fans venting up.

I'm looking for a laptop table where the fans blow their air up into the base of the laptop, but all I can find are ones that do the opposite, does anyone know where I can get one please? Or what these are called if they have a specific name.

A quick look and I found this:

The air flow goes upwards according to this question

Re: Looking for a laptop rest with fans venting up.

So.... you want to blow all the dust INTO your laptop ! ! ...  Shocked

 

Well, that is pretty much the same as the internal fans sucking it into it, I suppose....  Cheesy

 

to keep my laptop kool,   Cool    and the vents underneath clear, I have used a 12 inch length of 1" x 1" wood, and fixed it with some blu tack to lift the far end of the keyboard, ( under the screen hinge) which also makes the keyboard more "user friendly"..

Re: Looking for a laptop rest with fans venting up.

Excellent @jaread83, just what I was looking for so I just ordered one. @shutter, this is my son’s laptop and he spent a lot of money on it so just wants to keep it as cool as possible, thankfully though he’ll not disappear in a cloud of dust when it starts up as he keeps his room very, very, very clean and tidy. But that's another story.

Re: Looking for a laptop rest with fans venting up.

If you think it's running hot check the drivers have not come away from the heat sink? Happened to mine and a quick squirt of some compound and a re-fix and it was all sorted.

Do those with SSD have the same problem?

@dvorak - Thanks for that. I can't give you a double thumbs up, so have this Thumbs Up instead.
