Wow those features would cost double of what they are charging in India.
Thanks for help but my friend went ahead and bought hp envy 15-k006tx.

Guys my amd lappy hp pavilion g6 1318ax is two years old and heats up very much. The idle temps are 65 degree Celsius easy.
Its almost two years old. I used some local thermal paste and also cleaned the laptop fan but it didn't help much.
What do you suggest??
Will buying a good thermal paste make drastic changes to the current temps?

Noctua/Arctic MX 4 are both good.
IC Diamond is the best but out of your budget.
Arctic Silver V is bad.

some questions:-
How much does noctua/arctic mx4 cost?
where can i get it online?
Can they be used with both desktop and laptop processors?
please bear with me :)

i bought this laptop hp15 goo9ax--Error 500 Server Error

where would i find complete set of drivers for my this laptop for windows 7 64 bit?
i have searched the hp forums a bit and found that this laptop's drivers would work on mine- Software & driver downloads HP 15-g030au Notebook PC | HP® Support.


But drivers for audio,chipset and touchpad are not given for windows 7 64 bit while they are given for windows 8.1?? please solve this problem ASAP.

thank you !

I think those drivers will auto install [ or you need to have a working internet connection on the laptop to let windows install drivers fro you ] .. besides you can get HD audio driver from Realtek and chipset driver from Intel website.
