As I said, Asus K53SV enjoys its ASUS IceCool technology. It is based on the location of internal components that are generating heat (such as CPU and graphics core) away from the user interaction. Fans and IceCool's heat pipe cools the laptop when they are used and the temperature of the palm rest remains under the body. The IceCool technology virtually eliminates the unpleasant sensation that is occurring on standard notebooks during prolonged use.
