    At this moment, W530 is my primary computer at work. I often open many applications (Word, a few Windows folder, two or three browsers, each browser has many tabs, Eclipse, Tomcat, Excel, etc.). During the day, the computer gets pretty hot.

    My W530 is always put on a min docking station. I am wondering whether there is any cooling pad or any solution that helps in this setting.

    Thanks for any info!

    Pretty sure you can't do this due to the dock just blocking the entire bottom of the laptop.

    not to be off topic, but do you have the color sensor by default in your W530?

    By color sensor, you mean PANTONE Color Calibrator? I have this tool and it often asks me to color calibration.

    I guess it can't be helped on your case because of your 3920XM CPU generating a lot of heat when on high computing load. You may consider doing a thermal re-paste and try a couple of brands that are used by overclockers. Back in 2012 I've used ICD7 when I re-pasted my i7-720QM and I got better temperatures back then as long as you done it right.
