Not sure that I'd want the fans running all the time, but it might be a nice solution for those short periods of time I do want to use it on my lap
Well, I don't ever use my notebook on my lap. :black:
I do however, have a USB cooling mat for when I render things in After Effects or something that causes it to heat up a bit. The cooling mat works great and seems a bit more practical to me as it doesn't mess with the fan's software controls. Maybe I am over-cautious, but I don't like messing with things like that as they tend to have a tendency for more ill-effects than just a little heat on its own. :black:
