I just ordered it. Thanks for all the advice guys. Unfortunately, I will never turn vsync on again. I don't care if my comp catches fire. Turning it off has improved my game experience by 110%. I can not be competitive at pvp without missing my gcd triggers and animation distancing.

I have fullscreen windowed mode, which enables vsync automatically, and I get lots of ability delay and such, so I am not sure what to think. I will turn mine off and see what happens.

Cooler Master makes a 3 fan pad that will work on your 19.5" system. It's called the Note Pal U3. You can place the fans wherever you need them on the pad. Hope this helps.

There's your problem, the laptop needs to breath, the bed and the sheets tend to smother the vents and can cause overheating, get yourself a hard flat piece of plywood or what ever works to set your laptop on, that way there is more air flow without any soft bed or sheets restricting cooling.

The laptop is on a table.

And, you can actually switch to fullscreen mode, turn off vsync, then switch back to windowed fullscreen with it off.
