    How do you power it all? Does it have an AC connection? Did you manage to compare differences in temps?

    :twitchy:EDIT...I have just come to realize..I did that post the other day and possibly got it all wrong!
    The fans do give more powerful airflow on one side but it also means that I have to rearrange them, turn 180deg and have the same effect as described. Downside is that the fan cables would be on the upper side of the rig and I cant say just yet how will they be arranged. And I have to pull out the silicone mountings and those tend to break if not too careful.

    Anyhow, I've got lot of other stuff on my mind apparently so it did not dawn on me until now.


    EDIT: Well, live and learn:)
    I was apparently overexcited with the thing.
    Its all about the cooling pad angle, if its angled with the bottom sitting on the table it makes a difference in the airflow obviously.
    You can lift that part and while it makes the thing less noisy and has better airflow you kind of lose comfort of the keyboard. So I'm gonna use this setup, pull the laptop down like shown.

    @Devid

    Get silicone mountings!
    Those plastic clips will transfer more vibrations
    Make sure the fan is connected ONLY with 4*silicone. I would also advise that fans don't touch each other or the table.

    What did you use to connect the mains plug to the NA-FC1? I am trying to find a 4Pin PWM to 5.5mm*2.1mm adaptor (as I have a few 2A DC 12V lying around) but I could not find anything. I can´t figure it out from the pics.
