    Posted: 29 June 2021 at 14:07
Hi folks! I have a 15.6" laptop and the cooling pad I have for it really is just limping along. Yesterday it overheated and came up with some errors. I'd like to find something that pushes a bit more air to keep the laptop cool when processing photos.

Does anyone have one they like? I've been looking online but most of them have some sort of lights on them and I'm not sure if that would affect the color oh my photos or not (like blue light in the front that might shine on the monitor).

Just looking for an inexpensive cooling solution if anyone has some suggestions!

I've blown it out (I did not take it apart...don't trust myself to do that).

My air compressor does a superb job blowing out ports along with my Antec pad.

I did blow out the ports and it doesn't seem to be working as hard today so that's good news.

Is the Antec pad something like this one?

Yep, and I have same one too under a receiver for TV equipment. Cheap insurance and longevity.

Thank you! The one I got I don't feel like it pushes a lot of air around.

Remember to blow the cooling pad out every once in awhile too.
