    Intel Core i7 720qm - anybody with experience of heat?

      As the headline says, is there anybody outthere with a notebook with the i7 720qm processor in? And can you tell me about the heat and noise while playing games like CS:S or CoD:MW2

      To be precise - anybody with the Dell Studio XPS 16?

          I'm running a Studio 16 XPS with an I7-720QM...  We're in the same position and I'm looking for an Intel utility to measure core temps but haven't gotten replies yet.  Currenly , I use a Belkkin cooling pad with one fan...  Helps drop temp about 5 degrees, reduces laptop cooling fan operation alot.....  But isn't a valid fix in my mind.  They should be designed to be cooled properly.  Maybe they are but I can't find any specs on safe operating temps,  I'm calling Intel support on Monday.
