    Did you ever test your temps before adding the blower mod? I'm curious if it made any significant difference.

    If it did make a large difference, did you bridge the gap between the radiator and the blower only, or did you make a tunnel all the way from the blower to the heat vents?

    I don't remember actual numbers, but the difference was noticeable.
    Plastic pieces are covering radiator completely.

    Well, as I go straight to find out myself, I can say about this that:

    - The battery C32PNC5 fits but the SATA tray block it's way. The battery works OK conected with bay open but I need to break plastic tray. I'll do next week I think.

    So they went from the blower all the way to the back of the laptop, or was there still a gap between the end of the radiator and the vents?

    Also, did you do both blowers?

    Thanks!

    The "Internet Archive Wayback Machine" has snapshots of that site going back years, pick a snapshot and see if you can find what you are looking for.

    Here is a sample snapshot on 2017 08/23:

    The site is slow right now, but it's fast enough if you are patient. Or try back at a different time.

    Hi hmscott,

    Y search several snapshots without success, until I find a search engine in web.archive to find files, and I find several files:

    https://web.archive.org/web/*/http://voltground.com/vbioses//*

    But not the one for the 501VW: ASUS.UX501VW.960M.V1.zip

    As far as I know, Draemonic as left every forum.

    I hope someone at least from this thread has the file.
