I have an overheating laptop issue, HP laptop, overheating, I have two cores, and they go to 100+ degrees in about half and hour. Im not playing games or anything, just surfing, doing documents. I have opened the laptop, cleaned out any dust, replaced thermal paste, but the problem is still there. My question to you guys is, if the application of thermal paste still leaves a gap between the top of the cpu or gpu and the heat sink (thereby causing inadequate heat transfer), then should I use a thermal pad so that the gap is filled, and if so is it okay to replace thermal paste with thermal pads in general, even if there is no gap? Also, is it okay to stack thermal pads on top of each other to create the necessary thickness?

I recommend always using an external USB cooling assembly (one giant fan or two fans), my two laptops have had such since their respective day one.
