RE: Ultrabook getting to hot please some buddy help

I had the same problem, but after removing dust from the inside it works just fine. Although the fan was working it prevented cooling. I recommend trying that first, there's a manual at the dell-page how to open it, and it really needs just a screwdriver... 

here's how to do it:

My advice:

  1. Buy a laptop cooler which is like a plate placed under the case enabling it to get further airflow.
  2. Change the HDD to a more proper brand such as Seagate or Maxtor.
  3. Keep the HDD at least 40% empty.
  4. Defrag once a week.
  5. Do not use laptop on bed, or lap (so that the airflow intakes are not blocked).
  6. If you are using it on the table and not mobile for a long time, use it without the battery (remove it).
  7. Backup data regularly, because it will keep on crashing.

BTW my default idle values are:
CPU: 68C
GFX: 76C
GFX Load: 0%
HDD: 40C

Loaded Values without cooling pad:
CPU: 82C
GFX: 89C
GFX Load: 68% (while playing wow).
HDD: 55C

Loaded Values with cooling pad:
CPU: 61C
GFX: 68C
GFX Load: 68% (while playing wow).
HDD: 46C
