I think it is soldered and then added hot glue to strengthen it. That is pretty common.

yep it's soldered to the smaller than 1mm² test points. Not what it was made for but still works tongue.gif
post #6647 of 7231
So I had purchased a laptop cooler in the past, never used it much and either lost it or gave it away... so I decided to make my own.
Version 1.1 (1.0 didnt have such a large opening or duck tape for rigidity. I shouldve used more tbh. (Click to show)



Needless to say it really wasn't strong enough to support the laptop.
This could be easily fixed or..... I could just make a better one.

Version 2.0 (Click to show)
Some left over wood from a desk and some furniture stops that were laying around.




I may look into a wire that's close to the needs of the fan in the future, as it's currently powered by a 10ft molex extension cable I made for testing purposes a few months back.
Although I doubt the laptop will slide, the screws at the bottom are to "catch" it if it does.

This laptop has been my main PC for the past few months, not too concentrated on moving it around when I use an external monitor/keyboard/mouse.
