V sync Makes a World of Difference for Me

I don't know if this has been talked about before, but I have been without this since launch and feel like an idiot. My game plays completely different now. I had no idea it was affecting me this much. My gcd's properly show when they come off. My attacks register when i click them. My animations and distancing is now correct. Thus, making my pvp experience 100% better. I can honestly say, I think this is the single biggest issue I've had with the game that could be fixed with such a small thing. I love it.

With good, there is always bad... Unfortunately, after looking over the internet for a little bit, I can confirm that vsync was keeping my laptop from overheating. I have never had an issue before, until I turned off vsync. Aside from the obvious responses of just getting a better laptop or a desktop (which is not an option for me right now financially). what else can I do to maybe curb how often it over heat. Seems it's happening every couple hours or so. I have a 19 1/2 laptop, so a cooling fan for my size laptop seems to be out of the question, or atleast I have yet to find one after some pretty extensive searching.

Thanks for any help that can be given.

What I was saying is that I haven't found a cooling pad big enough to cover the necessary areas of my laptop.

Not an option as I use a lap table in bed for use. I cannot sit up in a chair on a table because of back issues. Long story.

Basically I use one of these, and I would need a pad that works semi well with this set up.

I am almost at this option, I am however wondering if anyone makes custom fans for computers. i think I can fit a small on in the cup holder on my tray (I know this sounds silly). But, it is in fact right under my battery/ac adapter plug in. AKA, where all the heat is coming from.

Your responses are so borderline troll responses. It scares me that I can't tell.

You are either the best troll ever, or having some really far out suggestions that might actually work.
