I bought dell studiio15 which has a ATI Radeon 4570 graphic card. While playing games for like 2hr at a stretch, it is really hot below the touchpad. I would appreciate suggestion on cooling solution for this graphic card.
well my best friend just added a second 4870x2 1gb to his comp..... the only thing is, is that it gets HOT. The best way to do it would to go thermal but not everyone has that money the second way would be to do what he does..... use many fans... you can buy those spot fans off of newegg. they clip on to whatever and you can move them anywhere in your pc. =)
Ok... I own the same Dell laptop... Its the Studio 1555... And FYI, its not the graphics card which is causing the problem... I contacted Dell about this and they said its the processor or some other integ. component... They are still in the process of figuring it out...
Try flashing the BIOS update which was released this week and observe...
SO far no major results for me...
the graphics card itself is cool.. And with that heat level, I have run my Studio for 72 hours non stop... It worked without a single hitch! Not even a cooling pad required!!!
man ur so damn correct! thats technology that dell gives for so less money!
i mean,its ok,it does get hot under the touchpad,but hey the lappy works fine,the thing is,of late i've been up all nights playing nfs carbon for hours on end,couldn't even keep track of time,but must have played 6-7 hours of that game one day(rather night i guess) and the lappy did get hot but hey the miracle happened! if its not in the chargin mode,then after first 30-40 mins,the rest of the 1 hour it all goes cool
try that,in unchargin mode
studio 1555 is goddamnably good laptop,good value for money...
i just wish i had enuff moeny to go for t9400 processor and an nvidia graphics card
even the wifi link thing inside it is good in catching connections
but hey am still happy
ps:sorry for the digression
