I literally grabbed the room fan and fanned my laptop down. The thing was running at the danger levels temperature-wise. I managed to lower my harddrive temperature by 15 degrees but the system is still running at danger levels eventhough it feels cool enough.

The lag subsided for now but it still spikes whenever I run 3+ programs (normally i could run 5-6 with slight slowdowns.. now 5 is impossible with the lag)

I should save for a newer computer. This thing is 2 years old and I think I've done enough punishment on it. (in 2 years, roughly 26 days are its rest time .. its been running nonstop)
