    Mine have a problem with heating palm rest. When I'm gaming, the palm rest get uncomfortably hot. Its almost burning my palm. Mine is the newest model. Anyone?

    Mine is the newest model, it has a really hot palm rest when gaming. I haven't had this problem before. Only encountered it since yesterday. I don't know why this is happening. Also, there are new video card drivers from official sites. The smartupdate shows two old drivers, which one should I use?

    did you repaste the CPU / GPU? Have you tried raising the laptop a bit and adding cool air on the bottom to get better air flow or try a laptop cooler?

    Ha! I tried raising the laptop, it worked! Benchmarked it for 30 mins. Palm rest was comfortably warm. About repasting, it would be really difficult right?

    I have found that my Aero 15 benefits greatly from being raised on two plastic bottlecaps or the like. Considering getting a laptop cooler for it as the summer months arrive.

    Definitely, lowered my temps by almost 5C on both the CPU and GPU.

    It can be difficult if you've never done it before. Where did you buy your laptop at? I would go on youtube and search for cpu / gpu repasting to get an idea and see if its for you.

    Here are the two combos I use at my GF's place with my Aorus x5v7. I use both in conjunction with each other: 1st one on bottom to provide air flow & the cooler on top of 1. Of course, you can use the laptop cooler only if you want but i like the cooling fan tower to provide air flow for the laptop cooler or you can use a fan instead of the cooling fan tower. Many ways to do it and up to your imagination.

    Best part of the cooler is it has 3 fans you can position under the laptop bottom intake to get direct air into it.

    Thanks for the tips, @RMXO.

    I'm wondering if it's better to get a cooling pad where the fans perfectly align with the Aero 15's fans. The one you linked seems it would be blowing around the middle center of the Aero 15's base, but the intake fans for the Aero 15 are in the two 'upper' corners.

    What do you think?

    That cooling tower fan definitely looks interesting. Is it noisy at all?
