    Buying a new gaming laptop that gets really hot on the bottom side. I was wondering what is the most efficient cooling pad today?

    You'd probably achieve better results with some carefully placed thermal pads and basic common-sense thermo-dynamic based mods. Depends what model of laptop you're talking though I suppose.

    I am buying a MSI GS65. It will come with Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut on CPU + GPU, and Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads on heat sensitive surfaces. I read people are having thermal issues with this laptop but I am not sure if it's just people that want to justify returning it. So I am making my research about what I can do to lower the temp on my GS65 already. :)

    If you can manage a -0.120V or more undervolt, that will help boat loads.

    Additionally, you can see an outside-the-box approach of passive cooling I am experimenting with on my Dell 7577 right now that I just posted tonight (even though it really doesn't need any additional cooling for any sane, normal use case scenario):
