Looking for an AC powered Fan to place under my Laptop's GPU!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Looking to buy an AC powered fan to place under my GPU while gaming.

I already lift my laptop off the table surface to let more airflow in, and this is having the same exact effect as using a cooling pad.

I bought a cooling pad last week, the Targus chill mat, and it had absolutely no greater effect on GPU temps than I had already achieved by lifting the Laptop a few inches off the table surface. I am returning it promptly.

I need a small fan that actually gets the air flow focused on the GPU, rather than in the middle of the laptop as almost every cooling pad does.

If you have any knowledge on the matter, please point me in the direction of what you believe to be a good AC powered fan that could accomplish this. It has to be small (like a desktop fan) and preferably AC powered but if you have a good USB powered one in mind go ahead and tell me.

Thanks,
Andros

My girlfriend swears by (not at) the Thermaltake T1000 laptop cooler:

She uses it for her MacBook Pro.

NZXT CRYO Notebook Cooler

Old roommate has one, 2x120mm fans underneath kept his notebook pretty cool. Was so power hungry his new toshiba wouldnt power it off of the USB ports. he ended up ordering the ac adaptor, but I think the new ones on the 'egg come with them, its a beast, but works well.
