Hey guys,

So i have an Xtremenotebook Raptor 390X Penryn. The specs are below...

8X DVD±R/RW Dual Layer Drive
120GB SATA 150 HDD 7200 RPM
Intel® T9300 2.5GHz Core™2 Duo 6MB Cache 800MHz FSB
HD 15.4" WSXGA+ (1680X1050) Wide Glass View LCD Display
nVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT PCI-E with 512MB DDR2 VideoRAM
802.11a/g/n Internal WLAN Intel 4965

Recently when i have been playing games (mostly Left 4 Dead) I have noticed that the game seems to hang up and lag for a few seconds to a few minutes. I had a spare hard drive laying around so I figured it may have something to do with the hard drive going bad....apparently not. It still has been doing the same thing. My current system temperatures according to speed fan are as follows:

*NOTE**: These are my IDLE temperatures, im not even sure what they reach while I'm gaming.

GPU: 65C
Core 0: 46C
Core 1: 47C
Core: 67C

I'm unsure if these temperatures are normal or not? So I've been looking at coolers. I have two that I have been looking at closer and really can not decide any help or recommendations would be awesome! I have included a picture of the back of my laptop, it has 3 vents of which one is right above my processor and video card. I thought maybe this would help in finding the right cooler for my particular situation. Thanks guys!

Coolers I've been looking at...

Either one will do. You can get by the the less expensive one.
Another thing to try is to get a can of compressed /canned air. Stick the nozzle in the vents and blow the dust bunnies out of the fan shroud and ductway

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
