I am a student so my first priority is to make it cheap. I am trying to make a cheap cooling rig for my laptop. You know how it is with Asus laptops and how much they heat up. At max load it can go up to 80 °C which is way too much. One thing that is stuck in my mind is to use a Peltier plate combined with a fan to cool the base of the laptop. Any thoughts on it?

Actually we have water-cooled laptops here in China. A few vendors on aliexpress offer this conversion, you just mail the laptop to them and they solder a copper tube with self-sealing quick-release onto the existing heatpipes. Complete with a external pump and radiator, it is only around 50-80 USD (by currencies today) and the pictures are the final result

You could try doing it yourself, just get water cooling parts for desktop. If you want to keep it mobile and simple (nothing risky like applying heat to heatpipes), thermal paste a copper tube of proper size to the heatpipes, pass the ends through the exhaust holes on the back and connect to a external cooling loop. Just remember to empty the loop if you aren't using self-sealing connectors.

I also think it possible to open a hole in the bottom of the chassis, and slap on a huge cooler. However the effect will not be as good, but it will help a little
