Hello

i have a curious question and concerns about this experiment. living in Australia it can get very hot and dry and i was wondering if placing an ice pack or ice and water under a cooling pad would work. when i mean work, i mean the cooling pad sucking in the cool air and expelling it to the laptop and its fans and cooling the temperatures lower than usually. e.g ~50 degrees Celsius becomes ~45 degrees Celsius after ice pack.

I also read from another forum that the condensed air could cause and damage your internal laptop. Something to do with condensation. i do not remember as i have not studied this for awhile.

thanks!

That cold ice pack or bottle of water is going to produce condensation on the outside of the bottle/pack. That free-flowing water can damage your laptop and will given the opportunity.

You're better off with a laptop-designed cooling pad/fan.
