Heat doesn't magically disappear. It's transferred.


Isn't the purpose of the laptop's temperature control system to get the heat out of the laptop so it doesn't damage the components? If your modified laptop is cooler than the unmodified one at each test point, isn't the implication that the modified laptop is keeping more heat internally (assuming that the heat-generating components are producing the same heat)?


At the very least I would hope that the modified laptop was generating more heat from the vents, indicating it's being transferred to air rather than the case.
