    My macbook being my first notebook computer and me being a fairly regular gamer, the heat issue was something i noticed right away. When playing 3d games the fan would (as expected) kick into high hear right off the bat, i had been monitoring fan speeds and temperature while gaming, just for kicks. The fan would sit at 6000 - 6400rpm at around 80C. give or take.
    well i went a purchased this 'cooling pad' for 10$ and was blown away with the performance. It reduced my fan speeds to 4000-5000 and the temperature sits at 70C now.
    WOW.
    best 10$ i've spent in awhile.

    it was new. bought it at bestbuy. and by psu you mean? power supply?
    it connects via usb and it has a funny little port on the back im pretty sure you could put a power adapter to but i did not get on.
    it also has 4 usb ports on the back. so you don't loose any slots
