    Only purpose you should use a "cool pad" is for your laptop to defeat heat off your lap. These really do not serve another purpose such as cooling.

    As for a stand, I have the belkin zero stand and love it. I use it for my 17" and it does keep more air circulating under it so it does provide cooler temperatures while running games.

    Yeah when I play games I notice in smc temps jump up to 95 degrees Celsius.So is there any thing that makes the system run actually cooler?

    What temps? CPU or GPU?

    I feel that the stand would help significantly. Maybe a small fan like the thermal take usb one to keep airflow under it.

    a new player

    Checkout the Prop. A very portable and affordable ($18) laptop stand. My partner and and I have been developing this stand for over two years and right now it's on Kickstarter. Check it out!

    it causes more airflow under the laptop right?

    The Prop uses a passive design that allows the laptop to elevate from the working surface which acts as an insulator to the laptops embodied heat.

    Checkout the links for more images and details!

    Thanks.

    Practically every laptop stand I have ever seen thoroughly reviewed shows little to no change in temps. Including laptop stands with fans. Personally I use a BookArc stand to get it up and out of the way.

    no offense...

    but you guys should really consider studying thermodynamics.......

    it really helps when you guys are designing something for heat dissipation..

    (*just a thought* from a professional engineer/designer)

    I would like mine in wood. How about a nice bamboo or perhaps a burled walnut?

    do you like it? I am considering buying one for mine, especially because I am trying to develop a standing desk. can you still type on it, with that angle?
