Alright, I managed to clean the dust a bit without compressed air. It's down to 70-75 C when playing LOTR and even lower in other games. I had to use a frame limiter to keep the game from running too fast as well. The laptop now idles at 40 C.

Get some compressed air and do it more. you could likely see some more drop in temp


That sounds appealing, but I'd rather spend less than 20 like I've been seeing online. If you have a good recommendation, post a local store or online store alternative.

Six cans for 20 bucks. That's pretty damn good. Should last you a good long while
