Got a Y510p that's already on a stand essentially "floating" since neither the back nor the side fan are covered thus allowing free flow of air, would adding a cooling pad make any difference?
Or I should instead use a puller fan? here's one for example

I was and am using cooling pads for aroud 5 years. And yes, they make the difference. However, any cooling pad will not do. You need to look for one with a single, large fan.
Also you have to remember to replace thermal paste around every two years and clean the vents (e.g. using compressed air) every three or four months. Without it even best cooling pad will not help much.
