Basic physics: you will get the most cooling by putting the hottest units at the top and the coolest at the bottom (assuming cold air is entering at the bottom and hot air leaving at the top). Whether it's an open rack or a closed cabinet with top and bottom openings will make a difference in the extent to which the units will act collectively. I'm ...

Take a thermometer and measure the outgoing air of the laptop, if it's different than the temperature readings in your software/BIOS, then it's possible that the temperature sensors on the motherboard are bad. If they are bad, you can try and set your BIOS so that it doesn't shutdown the system for another 20°C, if you do that though, I highly recommend ...

to cool your cpu install NOTEBOOK FANCONTROLL, with this you can force your fan to 100%, next thing, is more effective, lower your maximum power of CPU on 70% in power options, try it worked for me, my CPU is min 38°C, max 78°C sorry for bad eng. hope it helps

Any Noctua cooler which comes with the SecuFirm2™ Mounting Kit can support LGA1156. Relevant section of the Noctua NH-U9DX i4 specificatins here: Noctua NH-U9DX i4 It is worth pointing out that you can purchase other mounting kits which are compatiable with ALL of their products. NM-I3 Mounting-Kit NM-i115x Mounting-Kit NM-I2011 Mounting-Kit So ...

Do light colored computers generate less heat. Nope. In both cases the case does not generate any heat at all. Also I aren't newer CPUs more power efficient Yes, most of the time. But that does not mean that they produce less heat. This will be the case moust of the time, but a counter example would be a CPU which is more efficient per core but adds ...

When you dusted off the heatsink and fan, did you reapply new thermal paste? I've had two laptops that have gradually been getting hotter over the years, despite having a routine of opening and removing dust from the hardware twice a year. Once I decided to remove the old thermal paste (by using Isopropyl Alcohol) and applying some new, and it did wonders. ...

As we do not know what kind of Notebook you are talking about I can only give the usual advice. Open up your notebook until you can clearly see the fans. Now simply turn it on and check on what is running hot and why? Also make sure to check what is running hot. I guess the CPU but maybe the Heatpipe is just not applied correctly or not enough pressure ...

Will the MasterAir Maker 8 fit on the Gigabyte LG 1151 Micro ATX Motherboard inside of the Cooler Master Elite 110 Micro ATX Case alongside the ASUS GTX 970 Graphic Card? Here are the MasterAir Maker 8 specifications: Here are the ASUS TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5 specifications: Here are the `Cooler Master Elite 110 Micro ATX Case specifications: ...

No, there is no risk. Some disk enclosure got a fan already installed in them. If the disk need a fan to run I would more worry about the disk warranty. As if it wasnt built-on, why you need a fan on it?

You don't want to do this. that setup is horrifyingly dangerous. I see bare wires going into a multiple socket that seems to be of legal drinking age. I see electrical taped up joints. I see this whole setup on newspaper and cloth (which is flammable. I'm not sure if the fire would be started by something overheating or sparking though). IF you have a short,...

to redcuce heat, use a lower performance power plan. using a gpu actually reduces heat since it decreases the workload of the cpu.

A GPU is needed to produce the video signal that is sent to your monitor. Without one, you don't have a GUI. Some computers come with two graphics cards: integrated and discrete. Newer CPUs now have low-power GPUs built in; these GPUs are are the integrated ones, since they are a part of a greater processing unit. A Discrete GPU is its own unit and can be ...

If you have a BIOS option to disable the external GPU and keep the internal one, then it could well reduce the heat generation. Using device manager though is unlikely to make much difference.

In short. Yes, a GPU thats not being powered on shouldn't produce heat. However, make sure your laptop has integrated graphics before disabling anything.

My old windows gaming laptop was notorious for overheating. I struggled to use it in really hot weather, as the keyboard would get too hot to touch. I eventually got a little desk fan, and just had that blowing straight at the laptop whenever I wanted to use it in hot weather. The external case was aluminum, just like the Macbooks etc. so the moving air was ...

I have the same board, cpu and bios version and the same insane 80+ core temps. To get much lower temps, try changing the CPU core/cache voltage from Auto to Adaptive and leave the new optios on Auto. For some reason the default Auto CPU voltage setting feeds a lot of voltage. Using adaptive mode the max voltage was 1.2V@4.2GHz while keeping the highest ...

The dust problem may be the only concern for doing this, but as you stated is avoidable. I regularly do this with my laptops if they are running and I'm not using them. The only thing you don't want to do is rotate the laptop while it is running IF it has a mechanical hard drive. The momentum of the spinning disks could cause the heads to hit the disk if ...

If you have the space, open the laptop 60 degrees, then turn it so the side. Put it on something soft to prevent scratches. I've used this setup in the past with my old Macbook which could heat up to 90 degrees celsius. See this ice pack tip as well!
