So, as some of you know I've been having a great time with my Aurora. Today I played eq2 = everquest 2 for 11 hours. I have a lapcool 4 on the bottom of my Aurora...but during about eh 5 hours into gameplay it was hot and I was feeling a slight more "lag" but hardly noticable. About another hour I get a towel and use an icepack and put it on the left hand side of the touchpad (it's where the lapcool can't reach and is hottest.) After an hour or so when it's cooled I take it off. It is avg. heat for a while and starts warming up in a few hours a lot again... This time though, my game crashes. I then reboot, start over and use the ice pack on it again..to late I suppose as it kicks me out of the game. I can get in but, I guess I just need to let my laptop cool down for a while. (I'm guessing overheating is causing these crashes.) Anyhow, just curious as to whether you guys felt it was heat as well that was causing the crashes and if you had any other idea's on how to keep this umm "oven" cooler. Thanks.
