I have read all the relevant threads I could find on this subject, but not enough to help me with my issue. I was using ice packs to keep my macbook pro (2.53ghz) cool in windows xp and windows 7 due to a re-occurring black screen of death issue. During any type of gaming, in this case Titan Quest, the computer would go black and require a manual shutdown. The ice packs fully prevented this, leading me to believe that heat is the issue. Prior to resorting to ice, I had tried fan control (smc and fan control utility for mac) to keep my fans running. No luck. What I am wondering is if there is any viable solution to keep a macbook pro cool or preventing black screen of death? I can no longer use ice packs, as it has resulted in slight water damage to my computer (apple is awesome and covered most of the repair cost). I know how stupid it was for me to go to such lengths, but all I want to do is play some games on my laptop. That shouldn't be too much to ask, you know? All help is much appreciated. I am also very open to un-orthodox solutions such as the ice packs I used before. I have considered taping up the seams before trying ice once again, but i do have limits on how far my stupidity can go before it just isn't worth it.
