Laptop Cooler Fan Cable Mod

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I can't find a decent laptop cooler BUT fell in love with Coolermaster's U3

...Problem is I want a little more power in my fans, the M17X R3 has two vents on the side and it seems like 2 Gentle Typhoons would solve my want for a decent, affordable cooler relatively well smile.gif

But how the heck do I go about making them either draw power from an outlet or from a USB plug?

The problem is, I doubt those fans that you're wanting to replace them with would ramp up under the 5V's the USB outputs.

I have no qualms about using an outlet if its do-able. This is a "permanent" stand and won't be moving anywhere.

I have that cooler master one. You might try the NZXT Cryo Ls since it comes with 120mm fans

those things are useless. If your laptop is getting too hot u will need to open it up and clean out the vent.

I had that cooling pad, very much enjoyed the product until the fan started to whine.

I just used it to elevate the laptop after that point

giant heatsinks are useless. If your desktop is getting too hot u will need to open it up and clean out the stock intel cooler

i had that cooler for 1 day, and returned it, the fans were terrible made little to no air flow, and the damn thing angled my laptop so much it annoyed me and almost made it impossible to use.
