    How effective are laptop cooling pads?

    Do laptop cooling pads really work? If yes, then what's the best cooling pad available in the market? I need one because my laptop heats up and makes a wheezing noise while playing MMORPGS.

    I had an HP that had sever heating issues and I started using one of the USB multi fan units and it worked ok, although the HP died an early death, needles to say I would never buy another HP.
    The most  important thing is to make sure that the fans are blowing the right direction and not cancelling the built in fan.
    If it is making noise you need to look with a bright light and see if there is a lint buildup in the fan / port. If there is you need to clean it out first.
