I wouldn't bother. Use SMC fan control to help cool it. Download smcFanControl for Mac - Control Intel Mac fans to make it run cooler. MacUpdate Mac System Software Downloads

Cooling system for Macbook Pro?

just like any computer, the cooler you can make it run, the longer it will last.

the problem with smcfancontrol is that you'll eventually end up burning the internal fans out prematurely. just like any part that physically moves, the faster you move it, the faster it wears out. that being said, it's still a great program, just don't set the idle speeds to something ridiculously high.

if you can use a cooling pad, there's no reason to not use one.

I recommend and use the Griffin "Elevator" stand. Not only will it keep your machine cool, it also protects it from those nasty spills which we often read about in this forum. Go here.
