I want to buy a laptop cooler. It will be for a 15.6 inch laptop. The temps are very comfortable cpu on load is mid 50's (i5 2450m) and GPU hits low 60's on load (GT 640m) but I have money to spend and why not buy a laptop cooler that will HOPEFULLY increase the longevity of the laptops life. So any good ones? I've never purchased or looked into purchasing one so I am quite clueless. Thanks :toast:

The one I had for my laptop, which was a beasty Toshiba Qosmio was a Coolermaster NotePal U3(http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6671), it has 3 fans, which you could position wherever you want, to cool certain hotspots, like the GPU, and fan intake. This is a lovely fan, it's also ergonomically angled. If you can't get this, I would recommend any Coolermaster Laptop fan, and if you can't get any of those, try and get a fan from a brand named "targus", their fans aren't for gaming, but they do get the job done.
