Hi,

I have an ASUS N56VB and have been researching laptop coolers for a while now (or maybe even too much).
I checked the areas where the laptop overheats when playing games and noticed that it happens only on the left side. Even the hard drive, which is on the bottom right, is unaffected.
Also, I think the vents are not at the bottom of the laptop but on it's left side.
There are of course a lot of brands which make the choice even harder.

Considering those circumstances, I am not sure whether to buy a cooling pad with 1 fan, 2 or 4 fans. 1 fan lies always in the center, and the heating occurs on the left side only. 2 fans might be sufficient. 4 fans, while at the right areas, seem redundant.

I thought that maybe this will be good:
http://smile.amazon.com/BlueFinger%C2%AE-Arrival-Notebook-2200-4000%C2%B110%25RPM-Ultra-portable/dp/B0148IKWYS/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1455806236&sr=8-1-spell&keywords=Bluefinger+Laptop+coler
As it has both a cooling pad and a cooler on the side, but there are not enough reviews for this product.

Another good product is this:
http://smile.amazon.com/Cooling-TeckNet-Notebook-Adjustable-Temperature/dp/B016CL2F5S/ref=sr_1_50?ie=UTF8&qid=1455842295&sr=8-50&keywords=Laptop+cooler
Mainly because of the temperature display and the on/off switch (which hopefully also turns off the fans themselves).

Or perhaps this one (or something similar):
http://smile.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Massive23-Notebook-Oversized-CLN0015/dp/B003ZUXXWO/ref=sr_1_50?ie=UTF8&qid=1455889086&sr=8-50&keywords=Laptop+cooler
Perhaps one fan is better? I'm not sure.

So far I'm thinking about the BlueFinger cooler (mainly because it is pad&side cooler) but the lack of reviews is disturbing. I would really appreciate your assistance as I have never bought a laptop cooler before.

Thank you!

Whether these things actually work i dont know, however if your laptop has air vents in the middle or where ever the laptop cooler fans must be able align directly beneath them. Secondly some report keeping the temps at 30 degrees i find hard to believe especially if the cooler is reporting those temps. I would use something like core temp to verify, however if the laptop main fan does spin less than usual especially in something gaming or video encoding i would accept they actually provide good passive cooling. Which some do report it does that, which means the main fan works less, thus increases its life span, sucks less dust into the laptop......so why not. I would go for a model that provides the largest surface area of cooling, adjustable thus giving your wrists a break and preferably one that has controllable fan speeds.
