    Modified my Notepad U3 a bit more:

    Did bought a Dremel and cut the fans! Yes the work is not perfect but i kept it like this to keep the fans stable in the grid. Else i wouldn't have anywhere to screw them into!

    Update on my dremel cut for the air to flow more. Got a decrease of around 7 degrees (Celsius) in temperatures in my laptop due to it! Totally recommended!

    Go big or go home.

    Preliminary tests running 3x 140 mm fixed speed fans from Nanoxia look promising.
    The current solution does involve a wee bit of duct tape and has one minor issue:
    Apparently the fans resonate with each other, creating a low, throbbing penetrating drone.

    (Insert snarky remark from Deadpool here).

    I've ordered better sound dampening feet (Insert another snarky remark from Deadpool here) and I'll see whether I can move the fans around a little to reduce the droning sound.

    I'm truly, deeply tempted to just buy a pair of 200 mm fans from Noctua.

    Go big or go home.

    Should work fine, just make sure that your fan configuration draws less than 1A total.

    I will post some picture later but i have finished my Notepal U3 Plus mod.
    Thanks to everyone in this thread i was able to make some smart choices.

    I went with the following hardware :
    coolerguys Fan Power Supply - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0...in_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&language=en_CA&psc=1
    Noctua NA-FC1 Fan controller - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B072M2HKSN/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Noctua Anti-Vibration mount set - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B071W6KYCG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    3 x Noctua NF-F12 iPPC 3000 PWM fan - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00KFCRATC/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Legs to lift the front of the Notepal - https://www.amazon.ca/-/fr/gp/product/B07Z4SR6XD/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Fan Filter - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07YYZTB8T/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    The result is amazing and it's working like a charm.
    Definitely can feel the huge improvement in airflow.

    Personally i modded my U3 a little further and did cut the aluminium for better air flow and its a game changer!
