    @Ashtrix @sasuke256 @Mobius 1 @triturbo
    Some of the trials and tribulations in photos

    The interim design didn't need to fit in the case it just needed to keep the card cool enough during testing

    The current phase of this project is my final cooling system which should entirely fit inside the laptop

    Not according to https://www.hwinfo.com/forum/Thread-IMPORTANT-Fan-Control


    wouldn't that make the fan run at full speed?

    I see, that's unfortunate.

    Nope. It (slave fan) would run according to the main (master) fan, given the fan control works properly in first place, which seems is not the case.

    I'm with you, but from personal experience I know that it takes some till one arrives at a more eye-pleasing setup, no matter what was/is the task in question.

    And I salute you for that - function over form!

    The main downside is that the MXM-B takes-up valuable space, so you have to either compromise on the fan size, or on the radiator size, or both if you want a fully self-contained system. Do a shared setup (incorporating the CPU side), this way you'll get closer to the desirable temps, while maintaining the stock look. Overall 15"-not-very-thick machine, what the ZBook 15 is, is on the smallish side for fitting and properly using MXM-B, especially 100W+ one. Anyway, kudos for the enthusiasm and keep it up!

    I see, I think this scheme would work in a 3 pin pre pwm setup not sure about post pwm, others have also suggested, 2 fans on one header may blow the header

    thx!


    you aren't lying there my friend, the last setup I tried had the pipes crushing the fan and preventing the top piece that holds keyboard and buttons from being installed.

    I'm going to dremel that top piece

    I'm considering going shared if things don't work out as planned, I already reordered the stock cooler due to having damaged mine through failed bending attempts

    Works for M18x-R2 upgraded with 2x980ms - the second GPU fan doesn't spin at all, so @clevo-extreme fixed that. So I dug that pdf and the whole story is somewhere in between. You get the PWM signal from the main fan, power and ground you can get from wherever you want, the tach remains under question. In the M18x-R2's case, there's a header for this fan and they just get the PWM signaling from the main, while keeping the rest (P, G, Tach) connected. Not sure if we get the tach as well how it is going to affect both fans' speed or control.

    Ok I see, what you mean now this was what I was originally planning on doing until my 1070 caused the mobo to go to set the fan to full speed and stay there. I thought you were suggesting an alternative scheme, my bad.
