Custom built laptop cooling stand
I have 2 spare 120mm 1300RPM fans (non-LED) that I think would be perfect for use in making my own little laptop cooling stand. My friend has an HP laptop that has gaming peripherals, but it always overheats when gaming, so I figured I would put my extra goodies to good use, and give myself some experience with a custom little project like this.
What kind of parts and things will I need? I would prefer to be able to run the fans off of the laptop battery via a USP port.
I'm thinking I will need a casing material of some sort, a switch, a USB male cable, some wire, and anything I'd need to cut/mount/seal the casing and fans. I looked online and saw a vague step-by-step but it asked me to join to view the more detailed process. Any suggestions on the type of switch I would need, the material I should use, how I would wire it, etc would be helpful!
