Default In need of thin fan

Recently I purchased a laptop. I plan on overclocking it, but need it to run slightly cooler. I want a fan built in to the desk it sits on, blowing upward at the bottom of the laptop. This fan needs to be as thin as possible, I'm hoping 3 inches thick or less. It also needs to plug in to the wall for power and not draw from the laptop. I've been shoping for one all day but can't find anything worthy, was hoping someone here might have an idea for me?

I need it to be thin because I am thinking of taking the idea to a custom 'bed-desk' with a fan built in to the breakfast-in-bed type laptop desk. Also hoping for a fan not larger than 8 inches diameter. Even several small fans would be great.

Thanks.

get a chill pad or something like that :|

ohhh yea, what brand laptop do you have? if it's anyone like dell/hp..don't expect to overclock it any. no matter waht cooling you use, you probably won't get a laptop far...if you can even OC it

Well I am more interested in the bed desk, since I want to add a drink holder and some other things maybe (wall speakers..).. I know it sounds lazy but why not Bed is more comfortable than chair!

Its an Asus, M50 SA, some version. EDIT: Link Newegg.com - ASUS M50 Series M50Sa-AK023C NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T9300(2.50GHz) 15.4" Wide SXGA+ 4GB Memory DDR2 667 500GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 - Laptops / Notebooks

My other thought was to mod a couple of case fans to somehow directly plug in the wall.. but I have zero electrical skills. I think I would need to mod an adapter somehow, thats as far as my knowledge goes!

Couldn't you just get a cheap psu, and run the fans off that?

Would that add much to electric bill? Or will PSU only draw what it needs from the wall?

Edit: also how do you flip the PSU 'on' with no motherboard? I've never tried.
