Default Cooling pad for Dell

I am looking for the best available cooling pad for a Dell Inspiron 1525, price really isn't an issue, I just want to be able to run it for 12+ hours without it becoming too hot to touch, or not shutting down or freezing, and be able to run demanding games without it overheating
I keep it on a desk, I don't use it on my lap
I recently changed the thermal paste on the CPU, I regularly use cans of compressed air to keep it clean and I always get the dust out of the fan
Any help would be highly appreciated
Thanks

Personally I'd swap the merom cpu in that thing for a penryn(45nm) and put some AC5 on it.

Did that to my dads studio 1535, i saw load temps drop from 90C to 70C with the merom and another drop to 67C with the penryn. That machine uses the same heatsink for the graphics and cpu, so you will probably see more of an improvement.

I actually just upgraded the CPU from the T5550 to a T7500, thats also when I changed the thermal paste, yet neither of those things worked to solve the heating problem, I use a different laptop now anyways, I keep that one as a backup now
Thanks for the tips, will try out the arctic silver paste

The t7500 is still a merom so idk how that would have solved the heat issue. Anyways good luck with the new laptop
