    When possible I just use thermal pads on the opposing side of the vrms (other side of the mxm card) and that usually drops the temps a bit. I still kinda like this card for simple tinkering though I wish I had some infs to use it in the m15x and m17x r2 with win 10.

    Hey you the ranger has a vent there alrdy >:D Lol.

    Also a good way to go about making a vent is to 3d print one with slick using polycarbonate canton fiber branded by Priline. Then as the hexagon metal mesh and just expoxy it over the bad hack job via cutting the square hole woth to a dremel. But this would make it look really legit!

    You should have used the same connection from the GPU fan, that way it will spin up and down together with gpu load.
