Custom Laptop Cooling Box

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Now that my desktop has been sold. I will have to use my laptop for awhile until I can build another desktop. When I was using my laptop to play games I noticed it got way to hot. So I decided to make a custom laptop cooling box. There are pictures below, tell me what you think .


(custom cut box)



(80mm intake fan)



(fan power source - one 12v battery)



(here it is all together)




The box a made dropped the temps of my laptop by 8c idle, and 13c load!!

That is funny, but hey, it seems to work.

You should try and find one of those personal USB fans.

I have two of that same fan. Nice little buggers - loud, but decent air pressure to get through the foam on my CM.

That is a nine volt battery. Also would probably be easier to put two fans and run them off the usb, and that will saving you form having to buy a ton of batteries. Just a suggestion.
