Reducing temperatures watching Youtube videos?

I watch youtube videos like you a good chunk of the time and have noticed my computer can get quite hot

I dust the heatsink and fan out every now again, this helps a little and I use SMC fan control to help too yet the temperatures are still higher then when i'm not on youtube

I stuck little bumpers that were taller and bigger then the factory ones on to try, but barely helps

Is there any real way, I cannot switch to the HTML5 beta yet, so I am unsure how to go further with heat issues

As long as it's not actually overheating or getting too hot to touch, this is pretty normal behavior. I'd download the iStat Pro widget to keep track of the temperature, if you haven't already. But YouTube takes a lot of resources and will generally cause a laptop to get hotter than usual, so it's not necessarily anything to worry about. Make sure it's sitting on a surface that is not suffocating the vents (don't put it on a blanket, pillow, couch, etc.) Also, I assume with this model you've probably got at least 4GB RAM, but if not, you might consider expanding, because having plenty of RAM can help. You might also try the standard resets (PRAM, PMU/SMC) because they can help normalize the power settings if they've gotten out of whack.

Searching the web the best recommendation I can find other than living with it is this cooling pad. Never tried it myself but you might want to look at it as they specifically mention youtube as one of the things they help. Good luck.

Replacing the thermal paste with something like Arctic 5 or MX2 might help also. The paste that Apple (Foxconn) uses is pretty subpar in my opinion.
