Default LAptOP Cooler

Just wondering who runs laptop cooler and wat kind?

I've been lookin around but most of them seem to draw the air DOWN..

The vent on my laptop draws the air from the button up..I so far had no success finding a laptop cooler at reasonable price that pushes the air upwards instead..

Or is the way they are designed correctly ( to draw air away from the laptop but when the laptop fan come on they both fight for air? Seems inefficient )

Venum... You can most likly get the same tool as mine, you can make it spin up quicker so it doesn;t get as hot.

I've tried program style.. (speedfan and 2 others I Can't remember) I even checked in the BIOS and it doesn't have even the option to have it to stay on at all times..
