    I really doubt that there is enough space for that internally and having the back cover on as well. Unless, you add spacers and can live with gaps around the system.
    Not to mention depending on where you position the fan, EMI might do a number on some components.

    Which is a good thing, only the CPU heatsink can be a dread, if you want to get gunk out from the rad. Since that requires removing the tape that holds fan and the heatsink together.

    You can fit a ~60mm fan on the TM1 heatsink, as long as it's 5-8mm in height. Anything above that requires modding the back cover depending in where you place the fan.

    Yeah, bot the connector and the fan doesn't fit. I'll try to scavenge a fan from an old laptop.

    It's a 4pin 5v, but it needs to be rewired, since the board uses a non standart pinout.

    You might even fit a larger fan, but it requires cutting off some of the metal mounting brackets on the heatsink, which might not be for all.

    What's your current heatsink? The best upgrade is the vapor chamber and that usually does not need help if setup properly.
