I want something that will aid in keeping my laptop cooler as I intend to overclock the gpu some to aid in gaming performance. Would switching to an SSD make a decent difference keeping it cooler?

I found these coolers

Not really. Laptop HDDs run pretty cool.

I favor the NotePal X2 over the Notepal U2.
Keep in mind, depending on the cooling configuration of the laptop you chose you might need to flip the fan over.

Any particular reason you prefer the X2 over the U2? If it keeps it cooler it is well worth the extra 6$ to me

Have you picked a specific notebook yet? Being able to look that over might change my mind.

Or maybe the U2 with an upgraded 120mm fan.
I just don't think a 2nd fan will match up with the intake options on that type of laptop.

How long have you used the X2 some people are saying they go out after 4-6 weeks or so (But the majority love it)

I use a laptop desk, not a cooling pad. No fans, just good ventilation.
Both the U2 and X2 have customer reports of early failures. Not clear if one is more reliable than the other.

So as a final recommendation you think the X2 would provide superior cooling?

I think cooling performance should be about equal, to be honest.
