    laptop cooling pad

    i wonder how should i choose a laptop cooling pad

    should i choose 1 with only 1 fan, 2 fans or 3 fans ?

    also, should i choose 1 that is made of plastic, metal or aluminum.

    hmm...

    Welcome
    The more fans the more protection you desire at additional cost.
    Why not download speed fan and see how high the temperature actually gets and then you can decide how much protection is desired.

    Again with the matrial that is used to manufacture the pad, the more expensive gives the most protection

    When you test with speed fan if you are only marginally overheating or not at all go for the cheaper types. If you overheat excessively then the more expensive pads are desirable.
