Wink no laptop cpu fan? no worry!

So I was at a friends last night for a lan and the only laptop in the group decided today would be a good day to stop using the cpu fan ( I guess running at 100% for two years doesn't do them any good) so in order to play games I bodged this up using my side panel (still using my ol' enermax case at the mo') and an old but powerful case fan (note it was on a table with the fan having breathing space for the most of the night). I also removed the battery as they can put out alot of heat:


my fantastic A++ cable management in the public eye (I had to use a spare molex fan cable I have in my case to power the fan):


Now for the temperatures. It went from 70c idle for both motherboard and cpu to 40c (I know idle doesn't mean anything but I thought it'd be a good example at the time...):

Sadly I don't have any photo proof of the cpu under gaming load (intergrated graphics ftw) but it went from 90c-100c under load to 75c-85c.

Not a bad solution.

On my nearly 6 year old laptop, which has an Intel Core 2 T7500 and an Nvidia 8600M GT, I used to always find the load temperatures for CPU and GPU were in the 90's. I took it apart an replaced the thermal paste on the CPU, GPU and Chipset, and the temperatures dropped by around 10C, although I never considered an extra case fan.

To be honest that laptop of his is junk, I was impressed it lasted for as long as it had. That case fan was pulled froma n old pc in the garage and its the most powerful fan I've ever seen and it sounds not dissimilar to the stock amd 290x coolers...
