    I just had a funny idea for a 1060 upgrade... will a Slave GPU fan and sink mount and run without having a card underneath? I was just looking at n=1's old 9380 Cooling Overhaul thread
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/clevo-p370sm-sager-np9380-cooling-overhaul.757446/
    where he popped in a P370EM three-pipe combined CPU/slave GPU sink and wondered if, without having a Slave GPU to cool anymore, that amount of metal plus two fans might add up to a much better CPU-only cooler.

    IIRC it will just not run the fan without the second thermal signal.

    Will Fn-1 still crank the fan to full even without thermal signal? Or could I sneak in a Y-cable to run both CPU and ex-Slave GPU fans from the CPU fan plugin?

    I'm not sure about the power rating of the header and if it will cope. FN + 1 might still work.

    Have a play as I might be misremembering.
