An Innovative Notebook Cooling Solution

Well that’s certainly the most moronic-looking cheap cooling solution I’ve seen. I have to admire its sheer hilarity, though. However, bro, a box fan would be less… something:

Using a fan isnt that bad. They also sell a smaller version of that cooling system you made, for less than USD 15

Why not just look for a laptop that runs a bit cooler? Or replace that fast-spinnin’ hard drive with a cool-runnin’ SSD? It’ll also make your laptop quieter (and your wallet emptier ;-)

I must be a great innovator then because I’ve done something similar for years. Used a empty soda bottle to elevate at the battery cavity at the back with a small fan blowing at it. I’ve always thought it was a “duh” move but if the poster wants to claim innovation I guess I should give myself kudos too!

Maybe I’m not retarded but the first one will work better than the second because it has access to air that it wants to blow towards the laptop, the second one is trying to suck air through a desk.
Also, if the first ones fan was facing the opposite way it would remove the heat as opposed to trying to cool it with room temperature air.

I’m just saiyan.

If “yo” was a little more observant he’d see blocks of wood holding up the fan in the second picture. Maybe he needs to buy a new monitor instead of that crappy CRT he got from Goodwill for $20.

I’m just sayin’

I used to just use books under my laptop as a poor man’s heat sink. Finally paid a few bucks to get a metal one with some fans in it. I dig the boxfan setup though. Nothing like blowing dust into your face/computer.

So that box fan thing. Is he hoping to suck air through the top of that desk? Looks like a pretty solid wooden desktop to me. I don’t think he’s clearly thought this one through, yet.

Nice, I sometimes use the air vent, works like magic to cool your laptop lulz.

This is why you buy/build tower PC’s and not craptops.

An alternative would be to place the laptop in the freezer when not in use, then bring it out for use while it is still cold.

Seems like it would work just fine. The only downside is that you wouldn’t look cool to a bunch of geeks, which is hardly a downside at all.
