It's a reason @Mr. Fox did his bottom cover mod for his...
EUROCOM Tornado F5 / EVOC 16L-G-1080.
Same also for all us who have Clevo P870 series...
Actually, that is exactly what needs to happen (vents directly over the fans) for effective cooling. The interior chassis temps are the same with or without the vents based on my testing.
Take a piece of paper and lay it over the fan intake with about a quarter inch opening for it to pull air through. That will simulate the air flow with the fans blocked off by the bottom cover. The stock design is a serious engineering defect, not a carefully thought out design by MSI.
Today's Jokebooks + some normal laptops do not use proper passive cooling at all for PCH chips and NVMe ssd's. Everyone knows the topic ... ssd throttling, PCH overheating with throttling in the end and thin and flimsy (Alienwarte I can see you). In order to compensate for this flawed design, they rather prefer to destroy the WHOLE cooling... (f.eks no vents directly over the fans for Cpu and Graphics). They could do both... But this comes last in the queue, after thin and flimsy and increased cost. See *serious engineering defects*.
The MSI PCH does not overheat. Runs at 45-55C. And the nVME SSD's run cool with the heatsink. At least MSI got that right.
