    Question System76 Laptops and Laptop Cooling Stands

    I love using my System76 laptop on a daily basis; however, the powerful processor builds up heat underneath the laptop which is rather uncomfortable. With this being said, I am wondering if anyone here knows of a laptop stand with a fan that would work well with a Pangolin Performance.

    Newer Intel processors generally don't run hot, have you already tried cleaning out out? Dust likes to build up in heatsinks and some canned air does wonders. If it's still running hot you can pick up a cooling pad fairly cheap from an online retailer or just about any local computer store.

    Okay So, any cooling pad will do the job?
