My macbook runs on over 100Â°C sometimes, even with clean fangrills...
This makes the internal fans go into jet engine mode. :(
So heres comes my cooling device...
Flat, with bay for various fansizes, and nearly not visible when made with acryl.
with this cooler i got temps down to 80Â°- 90Â°C
for two max. 12.5cm fans.. because of their depth.
should fit the old and the new retina models
Lasercut plywood or acryl in desired strenth
stack them with threaded rods or glue them together and clamp the fans inbetween
runs silent and slow by using a old phonecharger 9volts unit instead of 12v.
fans are hooked up in serial.
