    My Macbook hard drive overheated when I was doing some heavy gaming.

    Now I have to get a replacement hard drive.

    What are some best ways to cool down my Macbook?

    Are laptop cooling pads worth it? Which brands do you recommend?

    Download smcFanControl.

    You can choose the fan speed and also download Istat pro so you can keep a eye on the temp, and put the fan up if it's getting to hot.
