Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX cooling options

Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX amd
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Hi I already did a cooling overhaul with this laptop I vacuum, dusted, cleaned heatsink and fan assembly, replaced thermal paste with artic mx4 paste and as of right now typing from laptop with a laptop cooler underneath laptop to drop temps.  I figured out the issue with my laptop and its cooling related the problem i have is instead of replacing the fan and heatsink assembly what are alternatives to getting this laptop to under safe operating  tempertaure requirements to 40*C to 50*???

 

Are there any heatsink and stronger fan assembly's that will fit with this model laptop????? What would u recommend to help aiding in cooling to drop temps to safer working operation?

What temperatures are you getting? The problem is that laptop cooling systems are unique proprietary designs. There is no alternate heatsink although they do use standard laptop cooling fans. There just aren't any new and improved fans on the market. 

 

40-50C is a bit agressive for a cooling target. If the processor is engaged to any extent you are likely to see more like 60-80C, which is not a problem. Anything 90C and above starts to be damaging over time.

You can try polishing the top of the processor core and the bottom of the heatsink and make sure you use a wafer thin coating of cooling compound. Some have used very thin sheets of copper between heatsink and top of processor to help wick away heat.
