Well it is unfortunate but due to an error editing my vbios the k53ta does not initialize correctly. i have since scrapped togather a vintage p166 gateway case and built a desktop, but that is of no concern now.
As of now, the laptop actually has 3 fans in it. the performance of the ghetto-rigged fan array was nothing to scoff at, but it seriously compromised the structural integrity of the laptop, simply put, the plastics were not meant for as many re-assembly's as I put it through.
As for the airflow problem, i fixed it by adding an intake fan in-between the two frontmost intake vents. the fan was from a scrapped nintnendo gamecube (rip) and was therefore a delta, and simply refused to run on less than 8 volts. eventually I added a 12 volt "rail" along the bottom of the k53ta casing, giving me access to 12volts wherever i needed it. i used a Train switch reverse/forward toggle and an external adapter whose plug was mounted on the interior of what was once the dvd drive to control the fan.
additionally i added several Blue Christmas tree lights in the vicinity of the fan intakes because its kind of like fireball stickers on a slow junker in terms of cooling.
this however was a foolish move because as we all know, blue in reverse is red. in short, when i went to test the reverse function of the third fan, i shorted all the Christmas lights.
having learned my blue lesson, i removed the toggle switch in a frenzy and switched out the blue lights for green. at this point the wiring of the twelve volt line connected in parallel all the christmas lights and the 12volt fan and would because of this, turn them all on when the external adapter was plugged in.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON AMD A-SERIES CHIPSET FAN CONTROL: Oh right, and i was able to wire in parallel the secondary fans Positive and negative leads because i learned the fan, although supporting 4 pin fan control, operates on PWM, not using the extra pin's control signal's. this ensured the fan speeds on both fans were the same on average, as in, increasing fan speed on load, and deceasing on idles ETC, ETC. the overall fan speeds were not effected, with the fan controler providing power exactly as needed, and the fans performing as though they were the only fans on the pins. (i recorded an experiment and proved this on a video which is on youtube.)
I have spent hours and hours working on that laptop mod. i am excluding excessive amounts of specifics due to the sheer volume of it all. if anyone has any specific questions about the mods in anyway, please ask and i will respond as quickly as possible.
Oh and about the christmas lights, im pretty sure im not sane
I have a plethora of images of my work, as i well document all of my exploits with my mediocre cellphone camera. even if i dont have a picture of it on hand, i can get one with ease.
@vini i attempted this as well, but i found that i would need a rather thin fan in order to blow air effectively from outside the cd bay into the case. (It CAN be done though, i have faith in that.) i built a very VERY VVVVEEEERRRRYYYY ghetto air intake system to achieve this at first, utilising an 80mm for intake, and a 120mm fan spinning up and pressing the outside air into the case. that was before any internal modifications were done.
It worked moderately well, decreasing the laptops ambient temperture and providing cooling cooling to the stressed vrm's and mosfet's. it allowed for a moderate overclock when used with a slight decrease in voltage in k10stat, my k series overclocking go-to. I will attach a picture, but have an open mind, as i dont care for aesthetics and only need results. (its ugly)
thank you for your interest and simply post if you have questions, so that the answers, if i can provide them, may be archived for another to perhaps find.Edited by knarf802 - 10/7/13 at 3:29am
