    G55 Cooling System

    Hello! I would like to know on which part of the laptop take in air for its cooling system. I have a G55VW.
    I would like to know of this because I am planning to buy a silicon keyboard protector. If the keyboard is part of the air intake, then it would be bad to cover it with silicone protector.

    It's underneath - there are vents in the base.

    Is there a need to get cooler pads to blow air from beneath the laptop then?

    I see.. Thank you very much for the information sir. I actually have not yet looked at every holes at the bottom of the laptop.

    In that case, there should be something underneath to protect the cooling system from picking up dusts and other light particles that might decrease its cooling efficiency. Maybe passive cooling pads or placing caps underneath to elevate the laptop might work.. Will do a test maybe next week and post here the results.

    The G-series cooling is that good. Flat on desk is 40-45 C at idle 50-55 (I think) at load ... GPU is higher (60-65 C). I had a chill-pad and it did no good. Then again, I had a G53SX.
    I am disturbed because I cannot break my system...found out there were others trying to cope! We have a support group on here, if your system will not break, please join!

    Ye chillpads or cooling matts are useless..

    If you want a real difference in temperatures you need to drill a few holes through the back cover where the fans are and then add some kind of filter so you dont get too much dust coming through.. That makes the biggest difference in temps compared to any other cooling method so far. Very useful for overclocking

    Yes, it's only more noise, no real temp drop on G series.
