Is air stock cooling for notebooks are generic cooling pads? I need help for my CPU.

Recommended Posts

My hardware isn't very powerful anymore, my cooling pad keeps the CPU idle around 40-45*C and GPU around 50. At 900p, most games are still not doing bad for me, I was thinking to make some tweaks on CPU & GPU.

i7 4710MQ 2.5 gHZ (3.5 turbo)

Haswell GTX 970M 3GB VRAM Maxwell

16 GB 1600 DDR3 mHZ

Zalman NS-2000 cooling pad

Monster Tulpar T7 motherboard

180W adapter

There are some real good HWBOT scores, but I am not sure if I have the same cooler as theirs. Since it is always written as air (stock), there are vacuum cooling ones too. If any of you can help, I would be very good.

many users here position the laptop in a fridge during benching 😛 Or blow cold airconditioned air onto the heatsinks. 

Sometimes reapplying the thermal paste with a superior brand can nibble off a few degrees here and there
