    Hi everyone,

    I have been looking around the internet but maybe my keywords are just bad. I am looking to go past the 10.55CFM fan that I currently have in my Alienware 17 R1 "Ranger". Seems the best bet is going to be moving up from 5v to 12v and I am willing to power them externally with a fan controller that is fitted to the CoolerMaster U3.

    So my question to you guys is exactly that, what laptop has the highest CFM rating? I have about 15mm-17mm in height to work with, otherwise I will shave down the rest to conform as I get further along.

    Not too concerned with noise, I use headphones while I game and when I dont I can just turn down the fan with the controller.

    I was originally thinking of getting the fox 2 pci blower, but I believe its voltage regulated and not PWM so basically its on or its off for the most part as voltage control is a bit more finnicky if what I have read thus far is to hold merit.

    Thanks everyone, really want to hit 4.5Ghz on my Ranger and willing to go to extremes to get there.

    Thanks for sharing but I am looking to replace the blower fan inside the laptop.

    Like you I have a Coolermaster U3 but w/ Gentle Typhoon 2150rpm fans

    I know its likely no where near one of the highest CFM fans, but the 8740W-Zbook 17 G2's fans are really high powered, I'd give one of those a shot

    I ordered some ADDA fans that were used to mod the Tornado F5.

    Ill have to put the wires to a regular 4 pin header and connect to my fan controller.
