Your laptop is supposed to be able to handle the heat generated by its components even under full load and for longer durations. If this is not the case, then dust and lint are the most likely culprits.

my laptop's gpu died after 2 years even though i regularly cleaned it.

the average temp kept slowly rising until it was idling at around 60-70C on a raised surface(books or whatever).

the only thing i didn't think of was a cooling pad but by then it was already too late.


Placing a laptop on top of books seems like a rather dumb idea paper being an insulator and all.

"two" books... as in on resting on the edges with clear space underneath the laptop for fresh airflow.

oh and also, hardcovers which to my knowledge have little to do with being insulators.
