I personally go with a small laptop and a powerhouse desktop on the side, but if you have to have a strong laptop, you made a good choice.

Look in into the Zalman laptop coolers. General consensus is that they're the best, but they cost a lot

If you ever need to keep it cooler, just raise it off the resting surface. Glad to hear its working nicely for you! Dex just bought a Lenovo with similar specs, looking forward to how it performs with the haswell and 7 series GPU

If this is the same layout as the other g-series units, it has a rear fan exhaust unlike most which vent to the bottom. That is one of the main reasons this laptop does not have the same overheating problems as others. It vents the hot air out of two large exhaust ports in the rear using 2 real yet surprisingly quiet exhaust fans. Some prefer to have their usb / video connections back there, but they are all along the sides. Good luck with it, you will be pleased.

it may very well exhaust out the back or the side or whatever, it probably intakes through the bottom. which is what mine does, and why I shim it up. intake is just as important as exhaust.

if neither intakes or exhausts are on the bottom, no need to shim it up
