Good call. In that case you should stop.

I haven't had a warranty left on this thing in almost a year...though even if I did, they don't make this model anymore so it'd take forever to get it repaired if I sent it in.

So basically I just pull the bottom panels off and blow it out, and check for loose stuff? Thanks guys.

I usually leave it on low power...the processor maxes at like 40% on my setting. Would underclocking it past that be a good idea?
