The Best Gaming Laptop Cooling Pads

Spread The Love!

When it comes to gaming, it can be expensive. You want both affordability but also quality and sometimes it can feel like one aspect outweighs the other.

You ask yourself, is it really worth spending all my hard-earned cash on virtual entertainment?

These can be difficult questions to answer… thankfully our answer at CheapGameAccessories is always a definite YES.

However, in order to maintain optimal gaming quality you’ll need the best (but cheapest) laptop cooling pads in the game.

So let’s go.

What Do They Do?

Due to the size of laptops, most of the time their isn’t enough room for big cooling fans or anything instrumental to be added internally, that’s why external cooling pads are always beneficial.

To put it straight-forward a laptop cooling pad does a lot but not much at the same time. When using your laptop, things like your GPU tend to warm up, this is due to the processing power having to work that extra bit harder in order to run games and certain applications.

If your laptop begins to become too hot, then the surrounding hardware like the motherboard and other components can become damaged. The problem is, over time you may notice that your laptop starts to become slower or less reliable.

In saying that, if you use your laptop in a well ventilated area/area’s (like on your lap), where their’s plenty of air flow around and underneath the laptop, then you shouldn’t run into any problems.

I recommend before checking out or even purchasing a cooling pad, to make sure you predominantly use your laptop on a desk when gaming because this is when it is most useful.

Please note that cooling pads don’t offer a massive difference in gaming performance but allow for more efficiency when gaming for long hours. (Also assists in not burning holes through objects).

Affordable Taste – What Are The Best

Depending on your price range and the brand/design you are looking for, a $20 to $30 cooling pad works perfectly fine.

  1. hey, that was a very informative post. I should consider buying one cooling pad for my laptop. My laptop produces a strange noise sometimes. Do you think it is because of getting too hot? The speed is still ok though.

    1. Hey Akbar, the strange noise your hearing could be heating up or your laptop may be old and not working as well, a cooling pad would assist in this by helping to cool it down!

  3. Great post and I will keep this in mind. We have already killed a laptop due to overheating (a combination of overuse and being left in the sun…kids!)
    Is the cooling pad plugged in in some way? Does more fans equal better cooling?

    1. Hey Irma, the cooling pads simply plug into a USB slot and sit underneath your laptop. Yes that’s correct the more fans in a pad(depending on how powerful they are) the better cooling in which your laptop will have!

  4. Sweet post, When i used my old laptop i could of used 1 of these because of how hot it gets sometimes. But when i get ready to get me another laptop maybe, then i will be sure to know what to get to keep my laptop cool. Thanks for posting it so now i know. 🙂
