I know that with games, you can plug in a PS3/360 controller

But keyboard+Mouse(from user input) is factually the best way to play an FPS game. From what I've heard and experienced , my laptop can get pretty hot when playing video games. though i haven't tried an FPS yet.

Has anyone here ever played FPS on your laptop? How did you ever deal with heat from your laptop? Is there a legitimate way to make it cool, even when playing games? Or did you stick to playing it on an actual PC?

What kind of PoS laptop do you have for it to generate so much heat that it becomes a concern?

1. You can plug a mouse into your Laptop rofl..

2. You can buy a million different cooling pads to keep your laptop cool if that's an issue.

Try getting some good Arctic Thermal paste and replacing the original paste with that.

1. I have a mouse. It's mostly touching the actual keyboard where it becomes a big issue

2. Just get anything? What is the best brand or one I should get? Do I have to worry about pads that work specifically with certain laptops? Or do they work for all of them?

3. Nope.

I...have...a....mouse.....but .... the buttons on my keyboard become too hot when playing games. Hence why I talking about it being hot in the first place.
