    By replacing the thermal pads under the fan module with some thermal paste, you'll notice a temperature decrease.
    Usually when browsing the web, I get ~35C - ~43C.
    This mod is pretty quick & easy, but be very careful while doing it.
    You might find some more information on my web page: http://aspireone.110mb.com/index.php?p= ... rmal_Paste

    And.. here's a screen shot. ~ 3:30 hours up-time

    How thick are the factory pads? Will a thin layer of thermal paste still touch the heatsink without modification?

    Yes, as I mentioned in my website, a thin layer will do! The pads are really thin.
