    You're selling a package but want to check with the community in case you forgot something?

    What kind of discount are you going to offer the forum for such a service?

    Well ain't this some crap. Lol
    I have a question.. why take away a heatpipe from the GPU and give the CPU a extra. BUT.. also adding a small fin stack on the CPU heatpipes. But nothing that moves air through it? Lol

    There is incidental airflow from the other fans, the heatpipes do not carry the heat primarily on the GPUs it's the vapor chamber, the heatpipes mostly act as guides due to the slightly odd path it takes.

    CPU gets an extra pipe to help carry away the heat.

    Sometimes if something makes you scratch your head there is usually a reason. The GS30 I have has got holes in the fan shroud just before the heatsink. This is so that air escapes and circulates around the metal base plate, this allows the plate to remain cool on the lap when the CPU works harder.

    I did notice how this one has the fan built in to the CPU heatsink. I'm wondering if it's possible to find another small fan to help blow through that fin stack. There are mounting holes there for something. And what looks to be an empty fan header

    Check Sunon small fans. This video doesn't do the UB5U3-700 fan any good justice. Not a good test...:oops:
    but still; you can see the size of the fan and some noise it produces. You may want to check out slightly bigger Sunon fans.

    you interested in upgrading it?


    3 different fans coming, all from china. one is a few business days away from arriving. check out my sig.. i'll let u guys know how much it really helps with temp, my guess is not much because they are weak fans.

    edit: checked sunon's website, their mini fan size is 1.7CM * 1.7CM and 3mm, couldnt find one thats 3*3. the extra fins measured can fit up to 5.5CM * 5CM * 6mm. pretty sure the fans @Papusan found is the best one.

    Probably not as my real world performance would see no benefit for quite a large investment.
