OK. I'm serious. How am I going to add an actual fan on a laptop GPU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have this laptop that is basically a mobile desktop. It has its own big ass monitor, its own mechanical keyboard, mouse and all and it just sits there playing desktop.

Now, I noticed its GPU is hilariously overclockable. Since their chips are basically the same on desktops with a stronger cooling, they can easily get +50% speeds at least without even caring.

But, can I fit a fan in there?

I can remove the keyboard completely, it's not used.

And will it hold in place?

You also have power consumption to consider....


If you don't plan to move it ever.... take the keyboard and stick some heatsink on it.

Then again... why not just sell it for a desktop?
