    What have people found to the best and cheapest way to keep Macbook Pro cool while gaming? I have a 13" 2010 version that I have been playing LOTR online on and it tends to be hot. Right now it is just sitting on a table, was wondering if there was a good stand or cooling tray available that seems to do good. Or if manipulating the fan speed using software is the best and quickest fix. If so what would be a good RPM speed without overtaxing the fan too much.

    Any advice would be good. Thx

    That's the nature of the beast. Best way is to make sure there are no obstructions (i.e. dust, fuzz, lint, etc.) in the airflow.

    The MBP will already choose the best speed for temp and fan life.:rolleyes:

    Glib comment(s) aside, any of the laptop coolers from Cooler Master should do the job.
