I need a way to supercool a laptop, STAT! Answered
Well I'm getting tired again of my mac being extremely sluggish most of the time (the hd is pretty fragmented, too lazy to get my boot disk takes a few hours to defrag). A lot of the "sluggishness" is due in part to the rather extremely hot 1.2ghz ppc processor. I've tried putting xbox heatsinks on it (like seen in my instructable, search that shit) and I even made an addition of putting a fan ontop, but at the most I might have seen a reduction of 5C, but under load the fan made no difference. I know the internal fan can cool it down from like 78C (it gets hotter playing halo) to a nice 50C in a hurry at full speed. I haven't touched it though (wanting to hardwire it badly) because it has like 9 different wires for whatever reason (ground, positive and your sensor readout is all you should need right??). Anyone have at least some half assed idea of what I could throw together in a jumble? And yes, I've thought of using a peice of plexi-glass and cutting holes in it for computer fans and making a souped up cooling pad, but I don't have the fans.
