Get yourself a can of compressed air and start probing your fan duct(s) with the straw gently while the laptop is off.

There will probably be a fan somewhere that you can see, find that fan and determine which way air should be flowing through the duct. If you have to, stick the end of a small piece of paper in the fan while the laptop is on so you can see which way the fan turns, DO NOT LET THE PAPER GET SUCKED IN, HOLD ON TO IT TIGHTLY, once you know that you should be able to determine which way the fan is pushing air by looking at the shape of the fan blades.

Once you know which way the air flows, you'll want to start probing around GENTLY with the air cans straw in the side of the duct air would be comming out of. Get a feel for where things are, once you start tapping into something and cant go any further you're most likely hitting the back of a heat sink grille.

Once you've found where the heat sink grille is, you can pull the straw back a little and start letting off short bursts of air untill you begin to see dust comming out of the other end.
Don't be surprised when a small sheet of dust comes flying out if the laptop is a few months old.

Once you start getting some sort of dust comming out you can increase the length of time bursts of air last and get an idea where you need to direct them.

Laptops have a funny habbit of collecting a sheet of dust across the intake of the exaust fans heatsink grilles which completely restricts airflow and will cause a laptop to get hot.

It wouldn't hurt to do this with a can of air once a month to prevent that sheet of dust from ever collecting in the first place.
A cooling plate is also a good investment, but don't depend on the plate alone to keep the laptop in working order, keeping that duct clean is much more effective.
