Marker or paint (Prefer black,green or red depends on whether you making
an Nvdia or Ati graphic card,those with the top blocked by the casing is easier (Y) )

Check where your vent and usb is situated on your laptop
,and follow along(Cut the flap where the vent is and poke the usb through where it is)

    If I may make a suggestion. 2 fans are better than one. My cooler master had 2 fans that I could move around to where ever I needed them. But unfortunately the usb that connected to my laptop is what broke for me. That is what I am trying to fix.

    It has been suggested glueing it back. I might try it. Because it sure did a good job of keeping my laptop cool. Where as the new one I bought Thermaltake only has 1 large fan, and the blades are flimsy plastic. If I can get the cooler master to work again this Thermaltake is going back.

    You are on the right track add that extra fan and I think you will be happier.
