    Wow lol. Well....ummm....i guess it's ok if you're just removing dust from the vent. Just as long as nothing is touched

    here's how you can monitor the gpu temp

    Cleaned the fan output ports which looked like a lint screen after drying towels. I also, based on a recommendation from another thread, took out the two black plastic plugs that sit in the card slots on the left side.

    Net results:

    Original Idle Temp: 59
    New Idle Temp: 43

    Original EQ II Temp: 80+ until shutdown
    Current EQ II Temp (with graphics turned up to medium): 57

    As you can see, simply cleaning the output ports and pulling those plugs gave me a major decrease in operating temperature. My gaming temp is now LOWER than my original idle temp.

    The procedure was, like others mentioned, very easy although I would recommend working in good light with a set of needle nose pliers as I lost at least 2 screws into the lappy guts due to my over-sized fingers.

    Thanks all and I'll post any further information.

    Peace,

    D
