    This thing gets unnaturally hot. Like "burn your legs" hot. Are there any fan control utilities available for this? I can't find shit.

    Fan control utilities are going to slow the fan down.... That's the opposite of what you want. Get one of the laptop bases that has a set of fans in it.

    I thought about that, but I realized that even under full load, something's keeping this fan from going all the time. I thought there might be a program that could force the fan to stay on at full speed.

    if you feel competent enough, open it up (Im assuming its a year or so old) and clean the dust out of it with compressed air. possibly upgrade the fan while its open, and replace the stock thermal pad with some arctic silver :dunno:
