  1. Hi and welcome to Tom's forum.

    Since the laptop is new, apply new TIM isn't an option, so, I suggest you go wit one of the laptop coolers in this page. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007639%20600028834&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&Order=RATING&PageSize=20
  2. If you're a good diy person I'd suggest just build your own cooler. Get a cheap power plug from a thrift store or something with an output of 12v @500 milliamp or so and wire some desktop fans of your choice to it. Then getting a something like a cookie tray (lots of holes already in it) or a piece of cardboard cutting out the fan spots. I've made my own cooler and it worked much better than any usb solution.
